I received this in the mail. It was the talk that was presented by retired Judge NH Chan. It was held at the Perak Bar office sometime in mid March. Lovely topic' How to judge the judge'...
Apparently a copy of the talk, 7 pages, was handed to those present. It was interesting reading related to Ipoh High Court judicial commissioner Ridwan Ibrahim's handling of the case whereby MB Zambry applied for a declaration that Speaker Sivakumar's suspending him and his executive council as unconstitutional and unlawful. Chan stated that "anyone who can read knows the application by Zambry cannot be sustained" and he refers to Article 72, Clause (1)...check it out on page 7 , which states ..." The validity of any proceedings in the Legislative Assembly of any state shall not be questioned in any court"..he goes on to add.."Any reasonably competent judge or layman who can read can dispose of the matter in a few minutes...Why must there be a delay for something as simple as this". If you read his notes....it simply implies that Najibs gang is taking us for a ride....wasting time trying to hang on to a position that was 'grabbed illegally'....while the economy is eroding the State of Perak does not have a chief minister to make concrete decision for a better tomorrow.....It was interesting reading. I don't dare to summarise the talk( i might take it out of context) so i have posted the 7 pages here for your individual reading pleasure.
