SYDNEY: A Malaysian boy on holiday here with his mother and two cousins was pinned to a school fence by a car that mounted the footpath and hit the group as they walked to a nearby school.

The six-year-old boy died at the scene near the corner of Rickard Street and Marsden Road in the suburb of Carlingford, near the Carlingford Public School, shortly after 9.20am Wednesday.

According to the Australian Associated Press, the boy and his mother were walking to the school with two cousins, aged four and five, and two other children, both girls, when the car ploughed into them. — Bernama

A-G refutes HK account claims

Posted: 18 Dec 2013 08:00 AM PST

KUALA LUMPUR: Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail said allegations of his wrongdoings could be easily disproved but Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli chose to go through a lot of trouble to discredit him.

Refuting claims that he and his family members had dealings via banks in Hong Kong, Gani said: "If there is such (account), then it must be a miracle and I would like to know myself."

He added that all Rafizi needed to do was do a company search with the Hong Kong Securities Commission for details.

Rafizi's claim followed allegations by former CID chief Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim that he had a statutory declaration accusing Gani of taking bribes to ensure the Malaysian legal team lost in the Pulau Batu Puteh case against Singapore in 2008.

Gani had reportedly told Bernama on Tuesday he was prepared to give Rafizi a letter of authority if the PKR strategy director wants to check his accounts in Hong Kong or in any country over the millions of dollars that had purportedly been deposited into his (the A-G's) account as a bribe in the overlapping claim on the island at the International Court of Justice.

Repeating his offer yesterday, Gani said: "There is no need to trouble people. Just come and see me and I will sign the letter (authorisation letter) for him."

The A-G was speaking to reporters after attending a talk on the Security Offences Act organised by the Malaysian Institute of Defence and Security here.

Rafizi said he would take up Gani's offer, adding that he would travel to Hong Kong to further investigate the alleged case.

Bread manufacturer loses defamation suit

Posted: 18 Dec 2013 08:00 AM PST

SHAH ALAM: A bread manufacturer has lost its defamation suit against a consumer who claimed he found a dead lizard in a loaf he bought in March.

Sessions Court judge Sabariah Othman ruled that Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd had failed to prove the elements of defamation in the suit against human resources trainer Lau Kian Eng.

On March 28, at a press conference called by Klang MP Charles Santiago, Lau gave statements regarding the dead lizard he found in a bread packaging.

On Aug 6, Gardenia Bakeries sued Lau, claiming he had defamed the company in articles published in five Chinese language newspapers.

The company, which sells a variety of bread products under the Gardenia brand, claimed words and photographs published in the articles implied it had produced and sold unclean and unhygienic products to the public.

It had sought aggravated and exemplary damages and an injunction to prevent Lau or his agents from repeating the alleged defamatory words and photos.

Lau, in his defence, contended he never mentioned the brand name and that the photos of the packaging were blurred.

"The court finds the photos used in the articles did not refer to the plaintiff (Gardenia Bakeries)," said Sabariah, dismissing the suit with costs to be specified later.

She said there was no concrete or conclusive evidence of defamation in the case.

Lau, 42, who was absent from the proceeding, was represented by lawyers Sreekant Pillai and Nicholas Netto.

In an immediate statement, Gardenia Bakeries said it was disappointed but respected the court's decision.

"While the unpleasant experience by Lau and his family is most unfortunate, Gardenia is confident of the hygiene and product safety measures in place at our facilities," it said.

The company did not state if it will appeal against the decision.
