Federal Court frustrates Sodomy II ex-cop's dream of being a lawyer
The investigating officer in former opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s Sodomy II case has been denied leave for his final appeal to become a practising lawyer.
The Federal Court unanimously dismissed Jude Blacious Pereira’s application for leave to appeal against the Court of Appeal's decision in October last year.
“That means the Court of Appeal order stands. The Court of Appeal had dismissed the petition (to be admitted as a lawyer) because of non-compliance on the condition for training,” Bar Council's lawyer Malik Imtiaz Sarwar said.
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.
