It is certainly interesting indeed for what had happened in the past few weeks. Karpal Singh must be jumping with joy finding crystal clear target at Government for poor defence.
First, we had Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz stumbling by his own words in the Parliament. It was indeed a good idea to disclose how much have been paid for the ex-gartia to ‘sacked’ judges. At least, now we know how much Tun Salleh Abbas get in his pocket. (RM5 mil alone for him? Wow! He surely can rest, relax and having a peaceful life). However, like the old sayings, “Kerana pulut santan binasa, kerana mulut badan binasa”, Datuk Seri Mohamad Nazri Aziz made unforgettable blunder by giving out contradicting facts on the status of the fired judges in 1988 judiciary crisis. And who was firing him at that time? Non other than Mr Karpal Singh.
And today, once again Mr Karpal Singh on target. This time around, our own newly appointed Chief Justice, Tan Sri Zaki Tun Azmi for making such statements. It is shocking indeed for me when I read the news which part of the article mentioned there is audio evidence having Tan Sri Zaki having said he once made a bribe to court’s staff. It is certainly a howler having a trusted person knowing about the law, having released such statements and being recorded?
It was in 1988 the judiciary was in crisis. I wonder, if it is the fate of our judiciary to face such issues or perhaps a taboo due to Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz’s unplanned mis-guided statement in Parliament?
Words on the street – Judiciary…De Javu or no De Javu?
