Papagomo has until Dec 4 to pay damages to Anwar

KUALA LUMPUR: Controversial blogger Papagomo has until Dec 4 to pay RM800,000 in damages to former Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
 
Papagomo, whose real name is Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris, agreed to pay the amount, and deputy registrar Husna Dzulkifli set a Dec 4 deadline for him to pay the sum.
 
The court will also hear bankruptcy proceedings against Wan Muhammad the same day.
Counsel Latheefa Koya who acted for Anwar, told reporters that Wan Muhammad communicated his intention via his counsel Irna Shahana Samsudin on Thursday (Nov 2).
 
Other than the RM800,000 in damages, Wan Muhammad also has to pay four years' interest on the amount as well as costs of RM50,000.
 
On Feb 28, 2014, High Court Judicial Commissioner Rosilah Yop awarded RM800,000 in damages to Anwar and RM50,000 in costs.
 
In his suit filed on March 21, 2013, Anwar claimed the defendant had posted four defamatory statements on his blog between March 16 and 20.
 
In December 2015, a Court of Appeal upheld the damages granted to Anwar over his defamation claim and added another RM10,000 in costs.
 
The Federal Court later ordered him to pay another RM10,000 in costs after it ruled that his appeal had no merit.
