Investigate immediately exposure made by CJ Tengku Maimun
(Sinar Daily) – The government must immediately take action regarding the attempts of certain parties to invoke fear in the judiciary regarding a politicians case that was tried in court last year.
The attempts were exposed by Chief Justice Tun Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat recently.
Former Selangor and Federal Territories Rasuah Busters chairman Wan Azliana Wan Adnan said the alleged attempts should not have happened and a thorough investigation should be made by the authorities.
“It is right for the government to be concerned regarding the alleged attempts to threaten the judiciary and a thorough investigation should be done by the authorities.
“The actions should not happen in Malaysia that is known as a prosperous country.
“ The person or party responsible for threatening the judiciary has gone overboard because they are trying to overcome the the judicial power and set justice aside,” she told Sinar on Monday.
Azliana who was a lawyer said threatening a judge is considered unforgivable.
She said this was not only an issue of injustice, but what was worse is the offender is free and the image of the country has been tainted.
Selangor and Federal Territories Rasuah Busters Secretary-General Mohammad Amar Masuri said the judiciary should be free of any political intervention.
