COURT OF APPEAL DECISION; D-DAY FRIDAY AT 3.30 PM
FROM THE MIGHT OF THE PEN WEBSITE
The Court of Appeal will deliver its decision on who is the rightful Menteri Besar of Perak on Friday at 3.30 pm, after hearing Umno thief Zambry Kadir’s appeal against a recent High Court ruling favouring Pakatan Rakyat’s Nizar Jamaluddin.
Lawyers from both camps had earlier agreed to have the court hear the appeal proper first, rather than Nizar’s application to set aside a stay of execution controversially obtained by the thief Zambry last week.
Nizar’s request for a five-man panel was also not granted. A three-man bench comprising Justices Ahmad Maarop, Md Raus Sharif and Zainun Ali deliberated on the case.
Neither the thief Zambry, Nizar nor the Attorney-General, who acted as intervener, brought anything new to the court on Thursday. Arguments put forth at previous hearings were re-hashed and repeated. On May 11, High Court judge Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim had declared Nizar was the lawful chief minister at all material times and that the thief Zambry, who was sworn in by Azlan of Perak on Feb 6, had never been the legal menteri besar.
On May 12, Court of Appeal judge Ramly Mohd Ali shocked the nation when he granted in record, super-quick time a stay of the High Court’s ruling, sparking widespread public discontent about the quality of justice in Malaysia’s legal system.
Credibility of judiciary in question. Will they let Malaysia down again.
