INTERVIEW He may have been hailed as a beacon of light in the Malaysian judiciary but he never got the promotions his peers such as recently appointed attorney-general Mohd Apandi Ali did.

Court of Appeal justice Mohd Hishamudin Mohd Yunus, who retired earlier this month, confirmed Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak halted his elevation to the Federal Court.

He explained that this happened in 2013, when the judicial appointments commission (JAC) recommended his name to the PM for appointment to the Federal Court.
