Bravo, YA Justice Hamid Sultan Abu Backer!
May you be duly rewarded for your bravery.
Justice Hamid Sultan Abu Backer has been suspended until his retirement – for those senior judges who allegedly intervene in the decisions of several appeals this must be a relief.
Yet, if true, this is blatant corruption at the cost of justice.
Why isn’t a Royal Commission of Inquiry instituted to investigate this serious allegation and others in the brave Justice Hamid’s affidavit?

Sigh..perhaps, this is the new norm as well…
