From the goings on in KL, lawyer must really be raking in the money! Malaysia is getting as litigious as the Americans. Nary a day passes by without some big wig politicians suing the papers, some organization or, best of all, each other. Some idiot alleges this and another idiot allege that. Someone else files an affidavit on what he or she alleges transpired at such and such a place at such and such a time. Every one insists that their affidavit is supported by an independent witness. Everyone insists that the other side have fabricated their evidence. How do the judges keep a straight face?
With all the exposing going on these lawyers and their mostly politician clients have already done more exposures than Rose Chan herself!
I wonder if they ever stop to consider what the ordinary public think of all this shenanigans!
The pity of it all is that these idiots are too wrapped up in their own ‘syiok sendiri’ little world to know that we are watching them with disgust and contempt!
Anyway here are some ‘courtroom drama’ to amuse you. Some you may have heard before but there are still good for a laugh.Enjoy.
|COURT REPORTERS FORCED TO KEEP STRAIGHT FACES !|
