DOWNLOAD: The Amended Statement of Claims against Rocky
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4
ANALYSIS. The day Rocky made his first appearance on January 25 to defend the defamation suit taken against him by The NSTP & Gang of Four, WALK WITH US went on record to expose the ultimate agenda of the plaintiffs — that is to muzzle the entire blogosphere, damn the bloggers AND censure the blog commentators by misusing an instrument of law — defamation suit!
Subsequently, we told you how Kalimullah Hassan, the dominant plaintiff among The NST & Gang of Four, has misused defamation suits to muzzle Husam Musa and Matthias Chang, who had blown his cover as a plunderer of the national wealth. He doesn’t have a strategy per se, but his tactic is to invoke subjudice to stop you from exposing his money trails.
Now, the jigsaw puzzle is piecing together to tell you the big picture. The proof lies in the amended Statement of Claims against Rocky.
The amended Statement of Claims will show you that, of the 48 articles in Rocky’s blog that the plaintiffs cited defamatory and wanted to be removed, most if not all are related to Kalimullah Hassan the individual and his personal interests!
To let you be the judge, we have obtained the documents from sources within Shearn Delamore, and published here, in four parts, to help you get a good grasp of the merits of the case. As we are not plagiarists — unlike Brenden John Pereira — please allow us to attribute to Rishwant Singh of Shearn Delamore as the author of the said documents.
Take ACID TEST NO.1 as to why Kalimullah has wanted to censure the entire community of blog commentators. What does he rely on to prove Rocky has defamed him and the rest?
Turn to Page 225 of the amended Statement of Claims (it’s in Part 4 of the same documents we published in this website), in which the NSTP & Gang of Four assert the following in Paragraph 28:
28. All readers of the Rocky’s Bru weblog understood references in the defamatory articles to:-
1st Plaintiff (The NSTP)
2nd Plaintiff (Kalimullah Masheerul Hassan)
3rd Plaintiff (Hishamuddin Aun)
4th Plaintiff (Syed Feisal Albar)
5th Plaintiff (Brenden John Pereira)
and read it together in Paragraph 33 of the same documents deposited by the plaintiffs:
33. The plaintiffs will rely on the following facts and matters in support of their claim for an injunction and general, aggravated and exemplary damages:-
(i) the defendant’s course of conduct in publishing and continuing to publish defamatory articles of and concerning the plaintiffs and the Newspapers published by the 1st plaintiff suggest that the defendant has a motive or dissatisfaction vis-à-vis the plaintiffs;
(iv) the defendant has allowed members of the public with an internet connection to view all his articles, journals, letters, comments, posts and statements of and concerning the plaintiffs, including the defamatory articles, going back to 1.5.2006, if not earlier;
(v) the defendant allows and publishes and re-publishes viewers’ comments on the Rocky’s Bru weblog that are defamatory of the plaintiffs and these comments can be viewed by any person who visits the Rocky’s Bru weblog. The plaintiffs will aver and/or plead to such publications upon the completion of discovery;
(vi) the defendant frequently diverts viewer traffic from the Rocky’s Bru weblog to other weblogs which publish similar defamatory material of and concerning the plaintiffs, most notably to http://www.jeffooi.com/ and http://www.aisehman.org/;
(vii) the defendant frequently reproduces or permits the re-production on the Rocky’s Bru weblog posts appearing on other weblogs, most notably from http://www.jeffooi.com/. These posts are defamatory of the plaintiffs and each or any combination of them;
(viii) the defendant frequently links viewers to previous posts published on the Rocky’s Bru weblog that are defamatory of the plaintiffs or each or any combination of them;
Fellow Malaysians! You have to stand up and make a statement, whether:
1 ) As blog commentators (and some are anonymous), you have abetted Rocky to publish what The NSTP & Gang of Four said are defamatory to them?
2 ) As Malaysian citizens, you can’t comment on The NST and Gang of Four have lied and plagiarised?
3 ) As a blogger, Rocky can’t link to his own posts and other bloggers’ posts?
4 ) As a blogger, Rocky must NOT allow other bloggers from linking to his blog?
5 ) Other bloggers cannot link to what Rocky has blogged?
What make The NSTP, Kalimullah and his Gang so special that they should be the one setting the laws for bloggers, and setting the law on how we should express our opinions?
If this is not muzzling of our freedom of expression, what is?
And what Rocky’s motive are we talking about when Kalimullah has a bigger, more sinister motive of his own?
Remember, Defamation Act is just a legal instrument that Kalimullah had used, re-sued, and misused to shroud his attacks on opinion leaders who don’t share his views!
Stop him before he stops you!
