Malaysian court set February 18 hearing for Samy Vellu’s ‘wife’ case

KUALA LUMPUR (BERNAMA) – The High Court has set February 18 to hear an application by a woman claiming to be the wife of former MIC president Tun S Samy Vellu to be an intervenor in Datuk Seri S Vell Paari’s lawsuit to have Samy Vellu’s mental health determined by the court.

Lawyer RSN Rayer, representing Meeriam Rosaline Edward Paul, 60, told reporters on the date when met after the case management, which was held in chambers before Judge Datuk Mohd Sofian Abdul Razak yesterday.

He said the application was filed last December 17.

Vell Paari filed the suit against Samy Vellu, 83, last December 2, seeking a court order that an investigation be conducted to ascertain the mental fitness of his father, and whether the former MIC president and Works Minister has the capacity to manage himself and his matters.
