Barefaced Liar, Half-Dope Nazri Says "No Crisis In Judiciary"!
Speaking to the media Nazri said allegations that there was a crisis in the judiciary were the work of opposition parties who wanted to influence citizens not to have confidence in the judiciary.
He said this when questioned about the march by Bar Council members to the Prime Minister's office this morning to submit two memorandums, one calling for the setting up of a Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate a video clip showing a senior lawyer purportedly brokering appointment of judges and the other for the establishment of an independent judicial commission to appoint judges.
"They should go and check the facts first, verify the clip first. At the moment we do not know whether the tape is authentic. So we cannot jump to conclusion and lawyers are the people that should not jump to conclusions in the first place," he said.
He added that the government had formed a three-man independent panel headed by retired Chief Judge of Malaya Tan Sri Haidar Mohd Noor with former Court of Appeal judge Datuk Mahadev Shankar and social activist Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye as the other members to conduct an impartial probe into the controversial video clip.
They will receive their appointment letters from Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tomorrow. (Bernama)
***** Sometimes I wonder if Nazri is a closet masochist who derives pleasure from being publicly humiliated and reviled for the rubbish he spews out almost on a daily basis. How else can one explain the out-of-touch-with-reality statements he has a predilection for issuing, which has made him a laughing stock?
Ever since Dr Mahathir 'emasculated' the judiciary in the mid-eighties, there has been one crisis of confidence after another. Tun Hamid Omar and Tun Eusoffe Chin have already gone down in Malaysian legal history for the wrong reasons. The out-of-turn promotion of incompetent lackeys to high office in the superior courts is a national disgrace as is the overlooking and sidelining of erudite, impartial and courageous judges who do not bow to government pressure or kowtow to the executive.
Anyone who says that there is no crisis in the judiciary should seriously have his head examined. Until he is certified mentally suitable and fit, the person in question should at least temporarily quit his office. Do you think Nazri ever will? No. There is a better chance of having snowfall in Putrajaya this Christmas than the half-dope calling it a day.
