Bar EGM: The real motive (Part I)

Gerard Lourdesamy  |  Published:  |  Modified:

I refer to Joseph P's rather robust defence of his position that the Bar does not have the right to discuss the recent appointment and promotion of judges to the Court of Appeal and Federal Court in his recent letter to malaysiakini .

Suffice to say, I do not wish to engage in a legal discourse with the writer about the offence of "scandalising the court" which is a species of criminal contempt of court. Nor am I interested to discuss the merits or otherwise of some of the judges who have been appointed or promoted to the senior judiciary.

Nevertheless, I am constrained to reply to some of the scurrilous attacks made against the Bar by the writer and his use of less than temperate language in accusing me of being unable to make any argument of substance.
