Cop in Anwar sodomy case barred from practising law
The investigating officer Anwar Ibrahim's second sodomy trial, Jude Blacious Pereira, cannot become a practising lawyer.
This follows the Court of Appeal's unanimous decision today that struck out his petition to be a lawyer as he had failed to comply with an order by the Perak High Court for him to undergo a human rights course organised by the Bar Council and the Perak Bar.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
