PUTRAJAYA: Controversial blogger Papagomo failed in his bid at the Federal Court to get leave to appeal against the RM800,000 award he has to pay Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for defamation.
On Feb 28, 2014, a High Court awarded Anwar RM850,000 over his suit against Papagomo over postings that implied he had engaged in indecent acts with another man.
Papagomo was identified as Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris (pic), 33, by two High Courts.
In December last year, a Court of Appeal upheld the damages granted to Anwar over his defamation claim and add another RM10,000 in costs.
The Federal Court ordered Papagomo to pay another RM10,000 in costs after it ruled that his appeal has no merits.
