KUALA LUMPUR, June 18 — An application by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and the four others ousted form Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) to obtain a temporary injunction order to deem their removal from the party as unlawful was thrown out by the High Court here today.
The ad-interim injunction application, which names the ousted five including the party Bersatu itself as plaintiffs, was filed against party president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin, working secretary Capt (Rtd) Muhammad Suhaimi Yahya, and the Registrar of Societies.
Matters were originally supposed to be discussed in chambers, but due to social distancing regulations, proceedings were held in open court but behind closed doors; press were not allowed in.
Today’s temporary order was sought on top of an original mandatory injunction order applied for by Dr Mahathir and four others against Muhyiddin and the three other parties, while they wait for the matter to be heard in court in full which has since been fixed for July 9.
