Two years after Karpal Singh’s death, the Court of Appeal today upheld his conviction on sedition for comments he made in relation to the Perak constitutional crisis.

However, the court allowed Karpal’s appeal on his RM4,000 fine, reducing it to RM1,800.

This means that had the vocal lawyer still been alive, he would not be disqualified as a Member of Parliament and would not lose his pensions.
