I am not a lawyer, nor a judge, but I could be a juror, if the jury system exists in this country.Unfortunately, it doesn't.
However, as a businessman, I deal a lot with lawyers.There are good lawyers, bad lawyers and obviously there are also stupid lawyers.Not all lawyers are clever and coming from the same fraternity not all judges are clever either.
No matter how smart you are or how smart you looked, no one is infallible, making mistakes is as in the proverbial "to err is human" could happen to anyone. That's why we are different from the animal kingdom where an innate, typically fixed pattern of behaviour exists.....triggering instinct rather than intelligence.
I read this with much consternation.The unanimous decision of 8 judges (5 Federal Court and 3 Court of Appeal) questioned and belittled by one retired judge who probably is on the verge of senility.
He says the judgement is riddled with contradictions without actually naming what they are.“On the face of it, it sounds like they are contradicting themselves, isn’t it?” he said.“And if it’s really contradicting, then the whole judgment is rubbish,” he added.
'It sounds like?' Good of you Mr Chan.Malaysians are convinced?
Malaysian Insider reports that Chan refrained from commenting further until he had read through the full written judgment.
That kind of sums up the natural instinct of Mr Chan putting " the cart before the horse", commenting before reading the full judgement.
How could 8 judges be wrong compared to this geriatric?
I am puzzled?
