The defendants (PwC Malaysia) counsel, proposed for the trial dates to be utilised to only hear the plaintiff's witnesses and requested the High Court's permission to serve the statements of the defendants (PwC Malaysia) witnesses after the plaintiff's witnesses have completed their testimonies.

Plaintiff's counsel vehemently objected to this.

The defendants (PwC Malaysia) request was not granted by the High Court.

PwC Malaysia has been given till the 4th of August 2011, to produce the statements of their witnesses.

Lastly, the High Court ordered both parties to prepare supplementary witness statements at a later stage if necessary.
