The Malacca Bar was represented by about 20 members for the historic march that was triggered off by the VK Lingam video clip fiasco. Many were not happy with our Chief Justice, Tan Sri Ahmad Fairuz’s “no comments” and denial through Nazri. Therefore, the few that took up the challenge to travel to Putrajaya met at the Bar Committee office first before leaving together for Putrajaya.


We reached Putrajaya in time but the first 3 entry points to Precinct 3 Putrajaya were blocked by the police. No explanation offered. We were getting agitated in the van and wanted to confront them. Vehicles were randomly allowed or denied access to the roads. We managed to get through the third entry point (possibly because our van only had a Manipal car sticker and not a Bar one?) where else the other two cars were not that successful. The behavior of the police puzzled us. What are they trying to do?



Important Announcement

The Bar Council is organizing a march on 26th September 2007 at 11 a.m. at the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya in connection with the allegations arising from the above video.

The march will be made to the Prime Minister’s Office where a memorandum will be given to the Cabinet to call for the setting up of a Royal Commission to investigate the recent video purportedly involving the fixing of appointment of judges.

11th September, 2007



On 6th. September, 2007, the Malacca Bar Committee called on Dato’ Mortadza Nazerene as a courtesy visit and the grouses of members of the Malacca Bar in the course of their dealings with the Royal Malaysian Police Force, Malacca. (“RMP”)

General : Delay

One of the principal concerns raised was the issue of delay in general, whether arising generally or specifically – from investigations, charges being made out against accused or in the supply of police reports.

While investigations and/or charge can take some time, members are advised that at least in relation to the supply of police reports there is a benchmark of 3 days for police reports to be supplied.
