MCA has lamented a Federal Court ruling that parties can't sue individuals for defamation.Its legal bureau chief, Tay Puay Chuan, said while MCA respected the apex court's decision, the judgment could have a significant impact in future cases."The ruling could give the impression that anyone can slander any political parties without any evidence and need not face any risk of being sued."This would surely post a huge challenge for political parties in Malaysia," Tay said in a statement today.In light of the ruling, he urged the public to use their wisdom to evaluate and filter out accusations against any political parties to avoid getting confused by factless statements.The Federal Court made the ruling yesterday in Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng's bid to strike out a defamation suit filed against him by MCA.The seven-member bench led by Court of Appeal president Rohana Yusuf said the court agreed with the submissions by Lim's counsel that a political party can't sue for defamation.This is in light of Goldsmith v Bhoyrul (1998), an English case law which states that political parties cannot be claimants in defamation suits.MCA had sued Lim after he claimed the party was "pocketing" government funds meant for Chinese vernacular schools.Lim had previously failed to strike out the suit at the High Court and Court of Appeal.Meanwhile, in his statement, Tay accused Lim of being a coward for choosing to strike out the suit instead of proving his claim in court."If he was so vocal in making accusations that 'MCA received donations but never channelled it to SJKC', why is he not brave enough to prove his statement in court?"This shows that Lim himself had admitted to his accusations against MCA are all false and pure slander," he said.
