Will the court rule according to law? show of Umno incompetence and inferiority complex. what Najib’s reaction is to the convictions in Anwar case. He will probably say that it only proves that his government has not tampered with the law and justice machinery in Malaysia. Well that’s not that simple as that because this was a case monitored by the Supreme Court and witnesses protected by central paramilitary forces and legal aid from luminaries. But the question still buzzes in my mind: What sort of system is this where politics decides everything and extinguishes the line between right and wrong?
The unfortunate truth is that there is reason for this cynicism. A lot of the opinions that abound in media, both mainstream and social, are rooted in pre-fabricated positions that fly under the flag of one label or another. In addition, over the last few years it has become clear that very few of our certitudes about the independence ofjustice the allegedly independent institutions stand up to scrutiny.
