Malaysian Judges: Hall of Shame with thanks to MT

Hall of Shame

Eusoff Chin
Mohd Eusoff Chin
DISGRACE#01 Mohd Eusoff Chin, Chief Justice of Malaysia from 1994 – 2000, subjected himself to the worst kind of corruption, by ‘tagging’ along lawyer V.K. Lingam on a family vacation in New Zealand in 1994. He subsequently lied to the Royal Commission of Inquiry on the Lingam tape scandal.
S. Augustine Paul
S. Augustine Paul
DISGRACE#02 S. Augustine Paul, currently Federal Court judge, subjected himself to be a political whore when in 1998, while being a Kuala Lumpur high court judge, participated in the political conspiracy orchestrated by then prime minister Mahathir Mohamad. He put through a show trial of then-deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim and subsequently convicted the latter of sodomy and corruption. Among his notorieties, he allowed the prosecution to change the time of offence three times when Anwar’s lawyers provided the alibi.
Ahmad Fairuz bin Sheikh Abdul Halim
Ahmad Fairuz bin Sheikh Abdul Halim
DISGRACE#03 Ahmad Fairuz bin Sheikh Abdul Halim, Chief Justice of Malaysia from 2003 to 2007, was taped in the ‘judicial fixing’ scandal where he was heard in conversation with lawyer V.K. Lingam, on how to get Fairuz to be elevated as chief justice of Malaysia. He subsequently lied to the Royal Commission of Inquiry that he was not the other party in the said telephone conversation.
ridwan
Ridwan bin Ibrahim
DISGRACE#04 Ridwan bin Ibrahim, currently judicial commissioner of Ipoh high court, participated in the aftermath of Perak state coup by Najib Tun Razak. He first created the stir when he infamously ruled that five lawyers appointed by Perak State Speaker V. Sivakumar had no locus standi to represent Sivakumar. The astonishing ruling forced Sivakumar to be unrepresented effectively, as his ruling also stated that Sivakumar can only be represented by the state legal advisor, who has been shown to be colluding with the illegal menteri besar Zambry.
Ramly bin Hj Ali
Ramly bin Hj Ali
DISGRACE#05 Ramly bin Hj Ali, currently a judge at the Court of Appeal, took side on the Perak MB vs. MB on May 12, 2009 when he alone heard the appeal from BN menteri besar Zambry and granted him stay of execution on the High Court ruling, which declared Nizar as the legitimate menteri besar. Ramly’s hearing the appeal alone was a serious departure from the norm of the Court of Appeal, which hears cases in panel of at least three judges.
Balia Yusof bin Haji Wahi
Balia Yusof bin Haji Wahi
DISGRACE#06 Balia Yusof bin Haji Wahi, currently a judge at Kuala Lumpur high court, dismissed on Apr 1, 2009, Perak state assembly speaker V. Sivakumar’s application to strike out summons by brought by the three independent assemblymen, seeking a declaration that Sivakumar’s order to declare their assembly seats vacant was illegal.
Balia Yusof’s decision is a stark violation of the very fundamental of separations of powers, where proceedings in the Legislative Assembly of any State cannot be intervened by the court.
Alauddin bin Mohd. Sheriff
Alauddin bin Mohd. Sheriff
DISGRACE#07 Alauddin bin Mohd. Sheriff, currently president of the Court of Appeal, ruled on Apr 16, 2009 that Perak Assembly Speaker V Sivakumar does not have the power to suspend Mentri Besar Datuk Zambry Abd Kadir and six state executive council members from attending the assembly. It is a decision that was made in blatant defiance of Article 72 (1) of the Federal Constitution which says,”The validity of any proceedings in the Legislative Assembly of any State shall not be questioned in any court”.
Arifin bin Zakaria
Arifin bin Zakaria
DISGRACE#08 Arifin bin Zakaria, currently Chief Judge of Malaya, ruled on Apr 16, 2009 that Perak Assembly Speaker V Sivakumar does not have the power to suspend Mentri Besar Datuk Zambry Abd Kadir and six state executive council members from attending the assembly. It is a decision that was made in blatant defiance of Article 72 (1) of the Federal Constitution which says,”The validity of any proceedings in the Legislative Assembly of any State shall not be questioned in any court”.
Zulkefli bin Ahmad Makinudin
Zulkefli bin Ahmad Makinudin
DISGRACE#09 Zulkefli bin Ahmad Makinudin, currently Federal Court judge, ruled on Apr 16, 2009 that Perak Assembly Speaker V Sivakumar does not have the power to suspend Mentri Besar Datuk Zambry Abd Kadir and six state executive council members from attending the assembly. It is a decision that was made in blatant defiance of Article 72 (1) of the Federal Constitution which says,”The validity of any proceedings in the Legislative Assembly of any State shall not be questioned in any court”.
Nik Hashim Nik Ab. Rahman
Nik Hashim Nik Ab. Rahman
DISGRACE#10 Nik Hashim Nik Ab. Rahman, former Federal Court judge, ruled on Apr 16, 2009 that Perak Assembly Speaker V Sivakumar does not have the power to suspend Mentri Besar Datuk Zambry Abd Kadir and six state executive council members from attending the assembly. It is a decision that was made in blatant defiance of Article 72 (1) of the Federal Constitution which says,”The validity of any proceedings in the Legislative Assembly of any State shall not be questioned in any court”.
