Lawyers take to the streets again

Lawyers previously marched for justice in 2007

This Friday, 17 June, the Malaysian Bar is staging a “walk for the independence of the judiciary” at Padang Merbok, in response to the anti-corruption probe into Justice Mohd Nazlan Ghazali, the judge who presided over the SRC International 1MDB trial and convicted former Prime Minister Najib Razak.

However, given the current climate of political polarisation, how much of an impact will the protest make?

BFM speaks to lawyer and activist Ambiga Sreenivasan about why the legal fraternity is marching.
