Two infamous High Court judges who were involved in the controversial trials of jailed ex-deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim will be among the four judges to be promoted to the Court of Appeal.

Meanwhile, appellate court justice Pajan Singh Gill, who heard and dismissed Anwar's appeal against his sodomy charges, will be elevated to the Federal Court.

Sources close to the judiciary revealed that justices Arifin Jaka ( photo ) and S Augustine Paul are expected to take their oath at the Istana Negara tomorrow. There will be an official ceremony at the Federal Court later in the day.
