(The Star) – Umno treasurer Datuk Seri Abdul Azim Mohd has won RM1mil in damages over two libellous articles published by Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin.

Senior Assistant registrar Nor Hatini Abdul Hamid ordered Raja Petra to pay RM500,000 in general damages, RM300,000 in aggravated damages and RM200,000 in exemplary damages.

Nor Hatini awarded the sum in her chambers on Thursday during an application for assessment in damages over the libel suit.

Azim obtained a judgement in default on Aug 8 last year upon the failure of Raja Petra to enter an appearance in the civil proceedings.
