As reported in THE STAR, 13 February 2008:
Datuk V.K. Lingam was dictating from some handwritten notes as one of his two secretaries, Sumanti Jaaman, typed out the draft judgment which awarded business tycoon Tan Sri Vincent Tan RM10mil in his libel suit against several journalists, including the late M.G.G. Pillai....His brother Datuk V. Sivaparanjothi, Adam Bachek and W. Satchithanandhan were also helping Lingam, who was dictating handwritten notes to Sumanti....Making this startling revelation yesterday, the lawyer's former secretary G. Jayanti told the Royal Commission of Inquiry that the judgment was typed out throughout the night some time between November and early December 1994.
