Questionable decisions from Courts & Judges

Excepts taken from article published in The Malaysian Insider.

"As of today it is undisputable that Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir is a confirmed unlawful mentri besar of Perak. On the other hand Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin is a confirmed lawful mentri besar of Perak. That is the gist of the high court’s decision delivered by Justice Datuk Abdul Aziz on May 11, 2009."


"The stay order merely bars the lawful mentri besar from carrying out his lawful duties and in turn allows the unlawful mentri besar to continue performing his unlawful duties. That is the gist of the court of appeal’s decision delivered on May 12, 2009."


"On the contrary there were glaring absences of reason as to why the stay order was granted to Zambry thus the court of appeal has kept the people in the dark. Justice demands a reasoned judgment from the court whenever it allows or dismisses any application made by any litigants.

In all Perak suits which have landed in the highest court so far, neither the court of appeal nor the Federal court paid attention to this vital aspect of the court’s process namely the preparation of reasoned judgments."
