Blogger denies he is Papa Gomo
Wan Muhammad Azri, 30, is being sued by PKR advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim over the posting of a sex video linking him with another man.
In his statement of defence filed on Tuesday, he said he has no intention to damage Anwar's reputation and position as claimed by the Opposition Leader in his libel suit against him.
He said he has no knowledge and is not responsible for the publication of any libelous words and images of Anwar.
He said that the defamation suit by Anwar against him was frivolous, vexatious and abuse of the court process.
Judicial Commissioner Lee Heng Cheong set June 5 for case management after meeting the parties in chambers Tuesday.
Anwar's lawyer Muhammad Afiq Mohamad Noor told reporters that they received the defence's statement through fax on Monday and the court has given them 14 days to reply.
On March 21, Anwar filed a RM100mil suit against Wan Muhammad Azri for allegedly posting a series of defamatory remarks on the www.papagomo.com blog in March.
He is seeking general, aggravated, exemplary damages and other relief deemed fit by the court and an injunction to restrain the defendant from continuing to post such remarks and images.
