A prominent Umno lawyer has confirmed that a firm controlled by him, and in which the wife of former Chief Justice Tun Zaki Azmi is director, was awarded a RM2.2bn contract to build a major expressway, reports Debra Chong of the Malaysian Insider.
Chief Justice of Malaya Tan Sr Zaki Azmi must do the nation a favour by ordering the Federal Court to review its decision concerning the suspension of BN Menteri Besar Zambry Abdul Kadir and his six executive councillors. This act of the CJ would be perceived by thinking Malaysians as doing national service. It is imperative that he heeds this earnest and urgent call and orders an immediate review.
It was another day of absurdity in the annals of the judiciary when Judicial Commissioner Ridwan Ibrahim incomprehensibly ruled on 11 March 2009 to deny the Speaker of the Perak State Assembly his right of defence. His ridiculous decision has given the judiciary a bad name tarnishing its reputation and ruining its image.
