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.
