The Greatest Bolehland Swindle Pt. 1001
Unless you’ve been living under a rock somewhere or maybe living under a self-imposed exile from whatever source of news (govt-vetted or not); there’s a huge scandal currently giving nightly nightmares to the top people in the country’s judicial hierarchy, all out of a video clip which has been kept away from us for years. Video is here
If you’re one of those people do go here and learn, and also check out the original article, the beginning of the rot when Mahathir kicked out my grand-uncle (who I’ve never met, introduced or know proper), Lord President Tun Salleh Abbas in 1988: MT: Crisis in the Judiciary
To all reading, there’s a petition to His Majesty the Yang DiPertuan Agung to ask for the establishment of a Royal Commission to look into all that bullshit:
The People‚Äôs Appeal To His Majesty The Yang DiPertuan Agung
On 19/9/2007, the nation was rocked by another scandal, this time in the form of a video clip which exposed what appears to be a telephone conversation between senior lawyer VK Lingam and another person, allegedly fixing the appointment of ‚Äòfriendly‚Äô senior judges.
A careful study of the monologue presented in the video clip leaves a very clear impression that the telephone conversation is indeed between VK Lingam and the present CJ, Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim and relates to the appointment and promotion of judges. Other judges are also named in the course of the conversation.
That Tun Ahmad Fairuz had, subsequent to the release of the video clip, first responded that he would need to first view the video clip before saying anything, then issuing a ‚Äòno comment‚Äô response and only lately and that too through a third party making a bare denial of being a party to the conversation leaves us, the rakyat with a sense that Tun Ahmad Fairuz has not responded with complete candour on this matter.
This scandal now casts serious doubts on the suitability of Tun Ahmad Fairuz to head the judiciary as well as on the propriety of the appointments and promotions, made on the recommendation of Tun Ahmad Fairuz, of several judges of the High Courts, the Court of Appeal and the Federal Court.
We, the rakyat, no longer have any confidence whatsoever in the judiciary.
