KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is suing Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor for allegedly uttering defamatory remarks during the 15th general election campaign period.

In documents sighted by The Vibes, Anwar is seeking an injunction against Sanusi from repeating those slanderous statements.

He is also suing for libel in relation to an article published in a local news portal quoting Sanusi.

Anwar is also seeking an injunction against Sanusi from publishing the said or any similar defamatory words.

The article titled “Kes liwat Anwar: Dulu kesian sungguh, sekarang PAS kata kena ‘pikiaq’” dated November 14, 2022 was published by Malaysiakini in English and Bahasa Malaysia.

Aside from the injunction, the prime minister is seeking general, compensatory, aggravated and exemplary damages.

Sanusi was speaking on stage during a ceramah in Tambun, Perak during the campaigning period. 

Also present at the ceramah were Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Perak PN state chief Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu and other Perak PN election candidates.

During the ceramah, PN leaders had lambasted Anwar’s credibility, saying he was not suited to be prime minister.
