Bar Council To Prove Their Impartiality?

When the Bar Council came up with their interim less than flattering report of the authorities' handling of the Bersih 3.0 rally, the beleaguered Najib administration, as expected, snapped.

Then a minisiter, Nasri Aziz, called for the setting up of an alternate body to represent the lawyers.

Now, deputy prime minister Muhyddin has accused the Bar of having a perception problem of being dominated with opposition members and of being biased  He also said that the onus is on the Bar to prove that they are impartial.

Haha, whose perception? The people's or the government's?

This really makes me laugh. When you say that someone bears the onus to prove something, you are saying that someone is on trial.

Haha, who's on trial? The Bar or the Najib adminsitration?

The Bar Council were merely doing their duty to report without fear and favour on their observations of the Bersih 3.0 rally. As well they should, under the Legal Profession Act 1976 on a matter of law affecting the people's right of assembly.

If you don't like their report because it is less then flattering to you, then you should just examine yourself and see if there were some truths in it and try to counter what you consider as unjustified and not straight away reject it is as biased and then call for the setting up of an alternate body to represent the lawyers because you are not happy with the present lot.

If you did, each time you receive a negative report against you, you will have to set up another body who will hopefully side you the next time.

Haha. But what can you expect of the Malaysian government? This has been the childish way it has been going about handling criticism against it - condemn and demonise the other party and expect the people to accede or change the ground rules.

Very clever. And very original. Except that the rakyat are now no longer so easily taken nor impressed with the GOM.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
