Kes Liwat Ke 2 Anwar Ibrahim: Bar Council Diam Hakim Bersara Yang Juga Pakcik Ambiga Wakili Anwar

“The Bar Council passed a resolution today to prohibit retired judges from litigating in court”


Bar Council yang hanya diam seribu bahasa apabila Sri Ram hakim yang telah bersara muncul mewakili Anwar di Mahkamah Persekutuan.

Adakah Bar Council akan mengambil tindakan ke atas Sri Ram atau terus dengan sikap hipokritnya?

The Bar Council passed a resolution today to prohibit retired judges from litigating in court, said president Christopher Leong.

After the Bar’s 68th Annual General Meeting (AGM), he told reporters that if retired judges were allowed to appear as counsel, it may affect public perception as to the administration of justice.

“It’s understandable that a person represented by a lawyer will feel that he is at a disadvantage if the adverse party is represented by a retired judge.”

The resolution, which was jointly submitted by Tan Sri V C Georgea, a retired Court of Appeal judge who has returned to practice but not litigated in court, along with five other retired judges of the superior courts.


Calling Bar Council to make its stand on ex-judge acting as counsel

The Malaysian Bar in its Annual General Meeting held on  5 March 2014 passed a resolution prohibiting ex-Judges and other former members of the judiciary from representing clients in our Courts as this would amount to breach of principle and convention at play in Common Law.

The said resolution was passed as a response to former Federal Court Judge Dato Seri Gopal Sri Ram, to act as counsel in a constitutional case.

Yesterday and suddenly out of the blue we hear that Dato Seri Gopal Sri Ram has agreed to act and has indeed acted for Anwar Ibrahim in the Federal Court and the President of the Malaysian Bar maintains a deafening silence which can only be described as hypocritical to say the least in the face of the actions of DS Gopal Sri Ram and the Bar Council has failed to comply with their own resolution in this matter.

We therefore urge the Bar Council to issue a statement in line with their resolution passed at their 68th AGM. The Bar Council’s silence is a contradiction of their own commitment to uphold justice without fear or favour.

It is not proper for the Bar Council to have 2 sets of principles that differ when Anwar Ibrahim is involved and the credibility of the legal profession is surely tarnished by such hypocritical actions.
