#KiniNews: Federal Court disallows Mkini application, sets July 13 for hearing

The Federal Court has set July 13 to hear contempt proceedings against news portal Malaysiakini and its editor-in-chief Steven Gan over comments posted by readers on the website. This comes after a seven-member panel of the court decided this afternoon not to allow the respondents' application to set aside the leave order to initiate the proceedings. Court of Appeal president Justice Rohana Yusuf, who delivered the judgment, said the decision was made unanimously. The panel of judges found that Attorney-General Idrus Harun had established a prima facie case to initiate the contempt proceedings against Malaysiakini and Gan.
