The judicial appointment process of chief justice Md Raus Sharif and Court of Appeal president Zulkefli Ahmad Makinudin as additional judges were in accordance with the Federal Constitution, former chief justice Arifin Zakaria said today.

Arifin also confirmed that he made the recommendation on their appointments to the king on March 30, on the eve of his retirement.

"That's on record, I can say that," he told Malaysiakini.
