Apakah persepsi atas Hakim yang akan mendengar kes saman perlantikan MB Perak bebas dari ‘bias’?

 

Seorang Hakim apabila diberikan tanggung jawab untuk mendengar sebarang kes, mereka dianggap sebagai mampu membezakan kemampuan dan kepentingan  sendiri untuk berlaku adil dan tanpa memihak kepada sesiapa.

MB boneka-DAP yang dipecat Dato’ Seri Mohamad Nizar Jamaluddin memfailkan saman petisyen mengenai kesahihan perlantikan ADUN BN Lumut Dato’ Dr. Zambry Abd Kadir sebagai Menteri Besar Perak X. Saman ini difailkan di Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur dan bukan di Ipoh. Ini kemungkinan kerana Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi Ipoh ialah saksi perlantikan MB Dato’ Dr. Zambry sebagai Menteri Besar X dan kalau beliau mengadili kes ini, dikhuatiri akan menjejaskan kelayakan sebagai seorang yang tidak ‘berpihak’ (bias).

Namun begitu, kes ini dijangkakan akan didengari oleh Pesuruhjaya Kehakiman Mohamad Ariff Md. Yusof di Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur. Apakah Hakim Mohamad Ariff boleh berlaku adil dan tidak dianggap sebagai seorang yang ‘berpihak’ tanpa sebarang keraguan?

Beliau dikatakan pernah menjadi Penasihat Undang Undang PAS sebelum ini. Apakah persepsi atas impartiality beliau sebagai Hakim yang mendengar kes akan terpelihara, sedangkan MB boneka-DAP Nizar merupakan ADUN PAS Pasir Panjang?

Walaupun beliau dikatakan mempunyai rekod berparti sedemikian, namun majoriti rakyat dijangkakan akan menerima keputusan yang dibuat sebagai Yang Arif Hakim berdasarkan fakta dan adil.

Sebaliknya, apakah sekiranya penghakiman ini tidak berpihak kepada Pakatan Rakyat, mereka akan menjerit “Kehakiman dibeli”  sekali lagi sebagaimana biasa? Mereka mempunyai rekod sedemikian, terutama setelah episod pemecatan mantan banduan salahguna-kuasa Anwar Ibrahim dari Kabinet pada 2 September 1998 dan gerakan ‘Refomasi’ dilancarkan yang berlandaskan memperkudakan emosi rakyat dengan manipulasi fakta dan keadaan.

Where are all those who shouted “Daulat Tuanku” on 10 Nov 2007?

 

It seems HM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Ibn Almarhum Sultan Mahmood delivered a strong titah at the opening of the new Dewan Rakyat term, on how decision of HRH Paduka Seri Sultan Perak Sultan Azlan Shah Ibn Almarhum Sultan Yussuf Izzuddin Shah should be respected.

Respect sanctity of Constitution, says King

 

KUALA LUMPUR: The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin has reminded the people to respect the sanctity of the Federal Constitution.

In his speech at the opening of the second term of the 12th Parliament yesterday, he said the sanctity of the basis of the Constitution had been agreed upon by all parties during the Independence.

“In this sense, I remind all parties to respect this foundation that the Constitution was based upon and not question it,” he said at the Dewan Rakyat.

Earlier, Tuanku Mizan and the Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Nur Zahirah were welcomed at Parliament House by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, his wife Datin Seri Jeanne Abdullah, Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia and Dewan Negara Speaker Tan Sri Dr Abdul Hamid Pawanteh.

Royal entrance: Tuanku Mizan and Tuanku Nur Zahirah arriving for the 12th Parliament Session. Escorting them are Abdullah, Jeanne, Najib and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

Tuanku Mizan added that the younger generation should also be cultivated on the history of the country’s independence, the Constitution and principles of the Rukunegara.

He expressed sadness that some parties still raised narrow-minded racial issues and brought them into public debates.

He stressed that the Government would not hesitate to take action against those who tried to divide the people and that it would ensure racial harmony and peace were maintained.

Tuanku Mizan also expressed his concern over some people who believed in slanderous and false news spread by certain parties.

He said this had caused confusion among the public.

Tuanku Mizan also said the global economic situation was expected to be challenging and affected the country’s economic growth.

He added that although the world was now affected by the financial crisis that began in the United States last year, Malaysia’s economy was still strong due to various steps taken since the 1997 Asian economic crisis.

“Additional packages to further stabilise the economy will be introduced if the situation warrants it,” he added.

Tuanku Mizan said the Government had taken efforts to reduce the people’s burden during the current economic situation.

He also said political parties should show maturity and intelligence, and advised their members not to act in a manner that could affect national stability and economic growth.

He advised Members of Parliament to display tactfulness in the House.

“I am saddened over the behaviour among the Yang Berhormat during the past parliamentary sessions, which has spoiled the image of our representatives, the House and our country,” he added.

Tuanku Mizan also expressed his appreciation to the services rendered by Abdullah during his tenure as Prime Minister since Oct 31, 2003.

He said Abdullah, who is expected to hand over his post to his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak next month, had contributed a lot to promote democracy, accountability, integrity, and Islam Hadhari.

******************

What we at BigDogDotCom would like to highlight is that; where are all those who wore the yellow t-shirts on the afternoon of 10 November 2007 and chanting “Daulat Tuanku”, all the way from Dataran Merdeka, Jalan Tun Perak and PAS HQ in Jalan Raja Laut to Istana Negara?

Amongst the crowd include Pakatan Rakyat leaders such as partly-less Opposition Leader and former abuse-of-power convict Anwar Ibrahim and DAP Jurassic leader Lim Kit Siang.

How come their voices of “Daulat Tuanku” are no longer heard? They do that ONLY when they have narrow political agenda to suit their selfish interests????
