KUALA LUMPUR (June 9): Former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pictured), his son Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir and four others have filed a suit against Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and the Registrar of Societies (RoS), seeking a declaration that they are rightful members of Bersatu and that their posts in the party remain intact.

The four others are Bersatu Youth chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, former education minister Dr Maszlee Malik, Bersatu Supreme Council member Datuk Wira Amiruddin Hamzah and party secretary-general Datuk Wira Marzuki Yahya.

They named Muhyiddin, Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin, party organising secretary Captain (Rtd) Muhammad Suhaimi Yahya and RoS director-general Masyati Abang Ibrahim as defendants.

The 61-page statement of claim was filed in the High Court this afternoon through Messrs Haniff Khatri.

The former premier's group is seeking an injunction against Muhyiddin and the other defendants from holding any Bersatu meeting or amend the party constitution,

Furthermore, they are seeking an injunction against the RoS, preventing it from verifying or rectifying all Bersatu documents, and a declaration that Section 18C of the Societies Act 1966 (which allows the expulsion of members who bring their disputes to the court) is not applicable.

Besides seeking a reinstatement to their posts, Dr Mahathir and the five others are also challenging the cessation of their membership as affirmed in Bersatu's June 4 meeting, and seeking a declaration that Muhyiddin is not Bersatu’s acting chairman or chairman.

They are also seeking a declaration that the defendants’ membership in Bersatu ceased between Feb 28 and May 1, and that any members appointed ministers, deputy ministers, political secretaries, special officers or posts in federal agencies or government-linked corporations effective March 1 had ceased being Bersatu members.

They are further seeking a declaration that any actions, directions or decisions made by the Supreme Council chaired by Muhyiddin on Feb 24 are declared null and void, and they also challenge the appointment of Hamzah as the secretary-general replacing Marzuki.

Further, they want a declaration to nullify Hamzah's actions, decisions or directives as the party secretary-general

They also want all decisions, actions and changes concerning Bersatu done by Muhyiddin, Hamzah or Muhammad Suhaimi on their own or through their officers from Feb 23 until the end of this legal action be declared null and void.
