KUALA LUMPUR – Vell Paari, the son of Tun S. Samy Vellu has filed an inquiry into his father’s mental health condition at the High Court.

According to Vell Paari, his father, the former President of MIC was diagnosed with dementia due to the stroke he had two years ago.

The situation had caused the former Minister of Works to be facing problems with defending himself from the two legal actions against him.

“I have filed for it. I need to be given the power by the court to defend my father.

“He is suffering from dementia. He has poor memories and he has problems recalling certain events.

“He has to be assisted in managing his personal and financial affairs,” he said.

Vell Pari had sought an inquiry under Section 52 of the Mental Health Act 2001 to determine if Samy Vellu had a mental disorder that would cause him unable to manage himself and his affairs.

According to Vell Paari, his mother and sister knew about the application is will be supporting him in his action.

The inquiry would be able to determine the time frame of which Samy Vellu could be of mental disorder, and he was able to give orders to his solicitor to act on his behalf as well as the types of properties owned by the defendant. – MalaysiaGazette
