      Subject: Three senior judges demoted

      PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO OTHERS.....THE TRANSFER (AND DEMOTION) HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY ANOTHER JUDGE WHOM I KNEW FROM IPOH, WHEN I WORKED IN HIS FIRM AS A DESPATCH BOY (17 YRS OLD).

       

      AND you THOUGHT MAHATHIR WAS BAD, NUUH?
      PLS NOTE THE LAST LINE....

       


       

      If true, another blow to the judiciary....
       
      Three senior Judges  to be moved out soon - they are not pro  BN

      KUALA LUMPUR:

       

      Three  independent minded judges who have made some rulings unfavourable to the Barisan Nasional government are expected to be transferred out of the High Court's  Appellate and  Special Powers division soon. They are due to be moved to the  High Court's Commercial Division, where they will no longer be able to hear politically linked cases.
        
      The three are Justice Datuk Alizatul Khair Osman Khairuddin, Justice Lau Bee  Lan and Justice Mohamad Ariff Md Yusoff, according to the latest  edition of Suara  Keadilan, the official  organ of Parti Keadilan Rakyat.


      The paper quoted  court insiders as saying that the judges will be transferred  this  month. Justice Alizatul recently declared that Umno's Abu Hassan Sarif   was no longer the Kedah state assemblyman for Kota Siputeh and  ordered the Election Commission to hold a  by-election..
       
      An appeal is now pending against her  judgment. Justice Lau  heard the case in which deposed  Mentri Besar Mohammad Nijar Jamaluddin of Pakatan Rakyat challenged the legitimacy of   his successor, Umno's  Zambry Abdul Kadir, and ruled that  the Federal Court must determine four constitutional  questions.
        
      However, the Federal Court ordered that the case of who was the rightful  Perak Menteri Besar should be heard by the High Court. The case  was later  heard by a new High Court judge who replaced  Justice Lau  without the public being given any reason  given for the switch.
        
      In what was seen as a  stunning rebuff to the Barisan Nasional government and the Malaysian  Anti-Corruption Commission's investigative procedures, Justice Mohamad  Ariff recently ruled that MACC had no right to question witnesses in an  investigation beyond normal office hours.
        
      The judge also   found that the MACC acted illegally when it detained Pakatan Rakyat's  Kajang town councillor Tan Boon Wah overnight at its Selangor head  office in Shah Alam. Suara  Keadilan opines that the  transfer of the three judges was an attempt by the Umno-led Barisan  to  strengthen its grip on the  judiciary.
        
      It says that one  of  the judges to be named to the Appellate and Special Powers  Division is Justice Mohamed Apandi Ali, a former Kelantan Umno treasurer  who was appointed Judicial Commissioner in  2003.


      Commenting on the  expected transfer of the judges, lawyer Edmund Bon  told  Suara  Keadilan that  he and  many of his colleagues were uneasy about the  development.  He pointed out that  there had not been a single complaint against any of the three judges throughout their service in the Appellate and Special Powers  Division.  Since no
      logical reason  could be seen for the decision to move out the judges, he said, there  was no escaping the perception that politics was behind it. 


       

      Note: 

      So do you think that Anwar Ibrahim and RPK will be given proper hearings  and justice ?
