High Court seals Hamidah Osman’s belongings

 | December 23, 2015

Move was prompted by the former Wanita Umno leader’s failure to settle RM200,000 in damages in a prior defamation suit.


IPOH: In another blow to Hamidah Osman, Ipoh High Court bailiffs moved to seal belongings of the former Wanita Umno Information Chief.

Representatives from Mohamed Hanipa & Associates were seen carrying out the order at her residence today.

The Star Online reported that the action was prompted by Hamidah’s failure to settle damages totalling RM200,000 in a prior defamation suit instituted by Shah Alam MP, Khalid Samad.

On April 27, 2015, the Shah Alam High Court ruled in favour of Shah Alam MP, Khalid Samad who sued her over a blog post titled, “Umat Islam Perlu Bersatu”, which he claimed defamed him.

The post, made in January 2010, was alleged to have carried a superimposed photo of Khalid clothed in a bishop’s robe which he claimed branded him an apostate.

Hamidah again made headlines this November after she was sacked from Umno for breach of party rules.

The former Gopeng Wanita Umno division chief had been openly critical of Prime Minister and party President Najib Razak, and things came to a head when she invited Dr Mahathir Mohamad to an event in Ipoh.
