Former Perak menteri besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin is expected to take the witness stand at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on Wednesday, to testify in his RM50 million defamation suit against TV3 over the WWW 1 vehicle licence registration issue.
The matter came up for case management today before Justice Yeoh Wee Siam.
The former Pakatan menteri besar and also Pasir Panjang assemblyperson will be the only witness for the plaintiff, while there will be two witnesses from the television station.
The hearing has been fixed for three days beginning Wednesday.
Nizar filed separate suits against the television station and Umno-owned daily Utusan Malaysia where the two used his Twitter statements on the WWW 1 number plate issue, which was successfully bid by the sultan of Johor.
He claimed that the alleged defamatory statements made by the two had tarnished his image and could be interpreted to mean he was a traitor to the Malay rulers, especially the sultan of Johor, a politician who was anti-royalty and who instigated the people to hate the sultan of Johor.
Nizar claimed that TV3 had reported on his tweet in a defamatory manner, and that Utusan had twisted his tweet the next day.
