‘Court play’ reason for change of lawyers
Looking back, we've gone a long way from the time when judges and lawyers went on holiday together.
PUTRAJAYA: Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail said yesterday he had to change the prosecution team in the murder trial of Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu in the interest of justice.
That was because Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Salehuddin Saidin who was leading the prosecution team had been seen playing badminton with trial judge Datuk Mohd Zaki Md Yasin.
I hope that the judicial service would take the cue from the AG Chambers.
Sigh... if only this kind of morality was in place when MGG was fighting his lawsuit.
