Karpal: Sepatutnya Dr M pohon maaf
Mar 24, 08 8:02pm
Pengerusi DAP Karpal Singh mendesak kerajaan menubuhkan suruhanjaya siasatan diraja bagi menyiasat pembentukan dua buah tribunal yang membawa kepada pemecatan Ketua Hakim Negara dan lima hakim Mahkamah Agung pada 1988.

Terma rujukan suruhanjaya itu adalah untuk menentukan sama ada dua buah tribunal yang dibentuk itu mempunyai asas dan latar yang cukup, katanya.

Beliau membuat desakan itu dalam satu sidang akhbar di Kompleks Jalan Duta hari ini sebagai sebagai mengulas cadangan Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri yang baru dilantik bertanggungjawab menangani hal-hal berkaitan undang-undang dan kehakiman, supaya kerajaan sekarang memohon maaf kepada bekas Ketua Hakim Negara Tun Salleh Abbas dan dua bekas hakim mahkamah agung, Tan Sri Wan Sulaiman Pawanteh dan Datuk George Seah.

Ahli politik DAP itu berkata meminta kerajaan sekarang di bawah Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi memohon maaf bukan langkah ke arah yang betul.

Sebaliknya, kata beliau, sepatutnya bekas perdana menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yang memohon maaf.

Beliau berkata suruhanjaya itu hendaklah juga menentukan sama terdapat salah laku di pihak Dr Mahathir dalam menyalahguna artikel 125(3) Perlembagaan Persekutuan.

Bar Council backs Salleh apology move

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Bar Council has given its full support to Minister in the Prime Minister�s Department Datuk Zaid Ibrahim�s proposal that the Federal Government make an apology to the victims of the 1988 judicial crisis.

It�s president Ambiga Sreenevasan said: �It is high time to do such things, which had been there for some 20 years and the minister�s move is absolutely correct. We wholeheartedly support him.

�Everybody knows that the 1988 judicial crisis was all a sham. Might as well do the right thing now. What had happened then was an executive interference in the judiciary.�

On the judicial appointment commission, she said it had been on the Bar�s wish list and hoped to work with Zaid on it.

Zaid was also quoted as saying that although the crisis was 20 years ago, an apology was needed as it was wrongly handled and then Lord President Tun Mohd Salleh Abbas� sacking was inappropriate.

The crisis also led to five Supreme Court judges, who granted an interlocutory order made by Salleh, to be suspended.

They were Tan Sri Azmi Kamaruddin, Tan Sri Eusoffe Abdoolcader, Tan Sri Wan Hamzah Mohamed Salleh, Tan Sri Wan Sulaiman Pawanteh and Datuk George Seah.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Samad said there was no harm in apologising to Salleh.

�The Government has apologised for so many other things to the people, such as the untimely destruction of temples and other issues. So, why not an apology to a former Lord President?� he said.

PKR president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said the Government should set up an independent commission to look and review the judicial system to bring back its integrity.

�It�s up to Tun Salleh whether he wants to accept the apology or not.
� The main point is to correct the mistakes that were made in the past,� said Dr Wan Azizah.

Daripada Abu Umarah iaitu al-Bara' bin 'Azib radhiallahu anhuma, katanya: "Kita semua diperintah oleh Rasulullah s.a.w. untuk melakukan tujuh perkara, iaitu meninjau orang sakit, mengikuti janazah, menentasymitkan orang yang bersin, menolong orang yang lemah, membantu orang yang teraniaya, meratakan salam dan melaksanakan sumpah."
