Popular political blogger Datuk Ahirudin Attan or better known as Rocky Bru, has apologised to former top executives of publisher New Straits Times Press (Malaysia) Bhd (NSTP) as part of an out-of-the-court settlement in a defamation suit.

The statement of apology was recorded by the court, in which Rocky will also publish it in his webblog.

Rocky is said to have published 38 defamatory postings concerning Kalimullah, 21 postings against Hishamuddin, nine against Syed Faisal and 30 against Pereira in his blog during a certain period in 2006.
