Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy trial drags again, this time it was postponed to August 2. Judge Datuk Zabidin Mohd Diah was left to choice but to allow the adjournment because one of Anwar's lawyers, Karpal Singh was on medical leave.
And we can expect more adjournments after this. Why? For Anwar to gather more political support locally and internationally. As for Saiful, he too got to wait whether he can 'really' win this case, which caused him no embarrassment at all... not just yet.
Whatever it is, why must the Court has to wait to Karpal to recover in order to proceed with the case? Anwar got other lawyers with him and they are, I believe, as good as the DAP strongman, whom Anwar managed to 'tame' since they became good friends in Pakatan Rakyat. It is the same guy Anwar blasted and hated most when he was still with the government.
Yes, Karpal is a good lawyer but his age is catching up. Let's 'enlighten' him a bit by allowing the others to defend Anwar. Perhaps Anwar is becoming too dependent on Karpal as he sees some 'chances' to win the legal battle with Saiful.
The case has been prolonged for too long already. The Court must be firm next time not to allow any more postponements and adjournments (read here). There is nothing special about this case anymore, except that to distinguish who is actually the liar.
Who got buggered doesnt matter anymore. What matters most now is to safe the Court's time as there are other important cases waiting to be settled.
Who knows, maybe we would listen to the submarine scandal and its 700 million euros sidekick given to a company which is connected to a minister's wife after this. That is more interesting, doesnt it?
So, with or without Karpal, let just sum it up! If you are really clean and 'berani' enough, leave Karpal out of the case!
