Martin Jalleh reports on a year when the judiciary sank so low that it shamelessly allowed itself to be intimidated, its independence and impartiality to be interfered with, and its integrity to be reduced to ignominy.

It appears that the Opposition can only win Round 1! Whether it is the Kampung Buah Pala case, or Nizar’s case involving the Perak crisis or Anwar’s case with regard to getting the vital evidence for his defence – that seems to be the case! In all these instances, the High Court had shown a lot of wisdom, had taken the pain to understand the issues concerning these cases, and had delivered well-reasoned judgments that were impressive and well received by the people at large.

The legitimately elected but illegally ousted Perak Menteri Besar, Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin, has applied for a full quorum of 11 Federal Court judges to hear his appeal tomorrow.

A majority of Malaysians would support this application not only in the interest of justice but also because they want to see the return of confidence in the judiciary. They want the judiciary to be rescued from the doldrums and regain its former glory as a beacon of justice for all Malaysians.

AM coverIn our cover story, Mohamed Hanipa looks at the constitutional impasse in Perak and the impact of  the Court of Appeal’s decision favouring Zambry.

We reproduce a series of statements reflecting Aliran’s stand on the Perak power grab, the constitutional crisis and the judicial maneuvering. This is followed by a series of public statements  from prominent personalities, mostly urging the BN team to go back to the Perak people and let them resolve the issue at the ballot box once and for all.  

Aliran hails the judgment of the Kuala Lumpur High Court and salutes Justice Datuk Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim for his honesty and integrity in delivering a judgment that does justice to his profession.

Unlike the previous judgments on various issues pertaining to and contributing to the Perak political crisis, which were totally disappointing and appalling, this particular judgment has done credit to the judiciary.
