(a)      His Lordship will continue to hear all part-heard matters which had previously been heard before YA Puan Maidzuara Mohammad;

(b)      All matters before His Lordship (excluding Case Management and uncontested Hearings) will be heard physically;

(c)      His Lordship is amenable to mediate hearings before him provided all parties are agreeable to the same;

(d)     For criminal matters which have been heard in the lower courts, His Lordship reminded members to exhaust the appeal process first (where appropriate) before applying to the High Court to exercise its revisionary powers to avoid abuse of power; and

(e)      His Lordship will hear civil and criminal cases on an alternate basis each week.  

His Lordship welcomes all members to openly discuss and resolve any issues, and expressed his hope that the Bench and Bar would continue working together to dispense justice.
