Revelations from the bench....

Read more here High Court judge makes explosive judicial disclosures (The Borneo Post Online)

In the name of fairness, parties involved may need to come forward to fully disclose what have transpired then as per the disclosures made by his Lordship Ian Chin J. It's not going to be pretty, that's for sure. An excerpt from the above news report as follows:

“The then prime minister went there to issue a thinly veiled threat to remove judges by referring to the tribunal that was set up before and stating that though it may be difficult to do so, it was still done. He said all that after he had expressed his unhappiness with what he termed ‘the Borneo Case’ and after he had asked whether the judge who decided that case was present or not.”

Chin said no one had any doubt that he was referring to the election case though he (then prime minister) did not mention it specifically which he decided on Feb 13, 1997.

It's a sad state for the existence of such a so called "independence of judiciary" system in Malaysia..more so with such an announcement or admission from the learned Ian Chin J...I guess that explains why he is still a High Court Judge till now. The irony of it all is..as you said my learned LK.."What goes around comes around"

Just look at the timing my dear, firstly is with respect in the delay in coming out, secondly the fact that TDM just blogged with regard to the infamous 1st letter wrote by TSA to the then Agong and finally the fact that AAB is in deep sh*t currently thus the needs to create another diversion from the real issues facing the nation and he, himself!

Look at all this and you'll see that what goes around, COMES AROUND!
