This is also a conflict between theocracy and democracy; between practitioners of faith-supremacy and believers in faith-equality as the basis of civilised behaviour. A rather fancy phrase. “tyranny of the un-represented” cropped up repetitively in the discussions.The key lies in mutual trust between these two pillars of the constitution, that can be compared less in structure and functioning, but need to walk across and talk to each other, for in principle we have chosen the best political systems for all times — a democracy.
Is GP Kumar deaf and dumb ?
The AG office represents the people, but the judiciary is the custodian of the Constitution, the big book that contains all procedures of administration defined, though the Attorney-General has the power to not prosecute. Such matches never end in regulatory time, or injury time. Sometimes the outcome is by “sudden death”. It has to be sure that executive participation does not erode the only value we have—our commitment to our constitution (how it is followed is a different matter). It is here that further checks rather than balances are required. The executive represents the people. The more it can represent, the better. The judiciary is the custodian of the Constitution. Integrity intact, is not compelled in matters of representation.
Where is honesty and integrity?
The judicial system in Malaysia has collapsed, and is beyond redemption GP Kumar's manipulative phrase designed specifically to provide cover for perpetrators of the judiciary
the Malaysian public need to be educated on the finer points of the Law to enable us to take politics out the real hurdle for the judiciary is that it has over the years accumulated grave doubts of overall integrity of any party in power and most of its efforts have gone in checking that. Kevin Morais case and others (Altantuya, Kugan, Teoh Beng Hock, and Ahmad Sarbani and Hussein Najadi).We no longer trust the Police to do the right thing as the IGP and his investigators and other enforcement agencies, including MACC, Malaysia are known to be biased in favour of the Prime Minister in a number of instances in the past.
The long arm of the law, shrugged-off a few appendages, which would have enhanced its lateral excursions, but perhaps curtailed a longer reach, that law is synonymous and mostly obsessed with!The cardinal principle in modulating laws, is that it has to be done under light anaesthesia, and gloves on. The procedure, no matter how well thought in its benevolence, should cause minimal ideological discomfort, and one’s hands should appear clean, once you face the audience, having disposed off your gloves!
Former Attorney-General Gani Patail was suddenly sacked when he was about to charge Prime Minister Najib Razak for corruption offences. But has he said or done anything to change things after that? Absolutely nothing! So, in fact he has perpetuated Najib Razak’s hold on power by his silence after previously covering up for Najib in the Altantuya murder case and the Scorpene submarine scandal
Did both Cecil Abraham and Abu Kassim lie to Judge Su Geok Yam just to get an adjournment? If so, it seems that Cecil, Abu Kassim and the MACC would do just about anything for expediency.
The kebab of contention here was an effort by the government to bring about changes in the procedure of selection of,Attorney-General seeking some representation of the Legislature. As was to happen,the sacked Attorney-General the moment such a promulgation was placed, the Bar took no time in impeaching it. Paulsen and other lawyers may scream till they are blue in the face With the government taking on the judiciary, even in a “friendly”, can at times be a headon collision. The government represents the people, but the judiciary is the custodian of the Constitution, the big book that contains all procedures of administration defined, though the legislature has the power to amend the Constitution. Such matches never end in regulatory time, or injury time. Sometimes the outcome is by “sudden death”On the other hand, Mr Kumar, appears to be sympathetic to the Prime Minister and the Inspector-General of Police, raises a number of pertinent issues about the role of the Malaysian Bar Council in social or civil society activism (an euphemism for political activism), the ethics of lawyer-client relations, the value of statutory declarations, the Rule of Law and the state of our justice system Too many murder masterminds have been able to get away with murder (with no apologies for the pun). Furthermore, we need to regain public trust in our legal system and law enforcement agencies.
, Mr. Kumar, what is wrong with our Royal Malaysian Police Force led by the current Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar? Is Khalid a tool of the Prime Minister or is he a public servant who is engaged to maintain public order? As for you, Mr. Kumar, I trust you are concerned about ethics, not politics.
