Court to hear Palanivel’s appeal on July 13

The High Court had earlier rejected the MIC president's judicial review application after finding that RoS was right in giving its opinion on the party dispute.
PUTRAJAYA: The appeal by MIC president G Palanivel and three others against the High Court’s ruling to uphold the Registrar of Societies’ (RoS) directive to the party for “fresh elections” will be heard on July 13.
Court of Appeal president Md Raus Sharif fixed the date in chambers today when the case came up for case management.
Senior federal counsel Amarjeet Singh, who represented RoS, told the media that the court also ordered the parties to file their respective submissions by July 7.
Palanivel, MIC vice-presidents S Sothinathan and S Balakrishnan, and former MIC secretary-general A Prakash Rao filed their appeal on June 16.
A day earlier on June 15, Justice Asmabi Mohamad rejected their judicial review application after finding that RoS merely gave its opinion that the party should settle its dispute.
The judge said it was actually Palanivel who had suggested that fresh elections be held to resolve the party’s internal conflict.
Asmabi referred to Palanivel’s letter dated February 5, in which he had agreed to hold fresh elections at all branches and divisions, including for the post of president.
On February 24, Palanivel, Sothinathan, Balakrishnan, and Prakash Rao filed the judicial review application to quash the RoS’ directive.
