- If High Court judge Mohamad Zabidin Diah is not fit to preside his case, then who actually does Anwar wants? Someone from Washington or Geneva or The Hague?
Our legal system has long been recognised as being almost fair to anyone - locals and aliens - brought to justice. I think the "almost fair" is the best terminology to describe our judiciary. Worldwide, no system is perfect.
Anwar seems to be discontented with the way his case is being handled by Zabidin. Or is it the court itself? (Read h e r e...)
Wanting him removed from presiding his sodomy trial doesnt guarantee Anwar anything. If he is in the wrong, other judges who take over will have no choice but to follow what the law should do. Unless, as I mentioned earlier, if Anwar wants someone from abroad to sit on the bench.
Anwar has been very sceptical at how his case is being handled, accusing the government of wanting to keep him out of politics forever. In other words, send him to jail for 20 years as by the time he is freed, he would be rubber-legged. He is already 62.
The presiding today, which lasted only for 10 minutes draws speculation that Anwar is back to his old tricks again, with the intention to prolong the trial or postpone it.
Well, we actually want the case to conclude as soon as possible. Anwar has nothing to worry if he is clean. If he's clean, then Saiful will have to pay a high price for all the lies.
A Malay proverb says "BERANI KERANA BENAR, TAKUT KERANA SALAH". So, why are you so TAKUT?
