“What we want is not only the appointment of judges… but also the promotion of judges, especially in light of the appointment of Tan Sri Zaki as Chief Justice,” said Karpal Singh, its first chairman.

Saya memulakan sidang dengan menekankan peri pentingnya Parlimen berperanan mengawasi kebebasan dan kewibawaan badan kehakiman negara. Turut diusulkan ialah pelantikan Ahli Parlimen Bukit Gelugor, YB Karpal Singh sebagai pengerusi Kaukus.

Tarikh perbicaraan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim akan ditentukan oleh Mahkamah Sesyen jam 9 pagi, hari Jumaat 14hb November 2008.

Hakim S. M. Komathy pada 7 November lalu menolak permohonan pihak pendakwa untuk memindahkan perbicaraan kes itu ke Mahkamah Tinggi. Keputusan itu dibuat setelah mendapati sijil perakuan di bawah Seksyen 18A Kanun Tatacara Jenayah yang ditandatangani Peguam Negara, Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail tidak sah.

Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has announced the formation of a parliamentary caucus on the integrity and independence of the judiciary.

Speaking at a press conference in Parliament today, Anwar, who is also Permatang Pauh MP, said that the caucus will be established “notwithstanding the initiatives forwarded by Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to set up a judicial commission”.

“We have yet to see the papers (on the judicial commission) and I think it is appropriate for the caucus to elaborate on this issue,” he said, adding that the caucus will hold its first meeting tomorrow.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 – Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has welcomed the appointment of Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusof, the Secretary-General of the Home Ministry, as the new chairman of the Election Commission (EC) replacing Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman.

Anwar commended Abdul Aziz for his professional integrity and competence, saying: “He is quite highly regarded, that I know for certain,.”

However, he held a very cautious view as to Abdul Aziz’s ability to effect change to the public perception of the EC. He noted that the EC has been known to be “badly tainted”, referring no doubt to the increasing allegations against the election body under the helm of Abdul Rashid.

“We have to wait for his personal views that he, as chairman, will make and not as a secretary-general of a ministry,” Anwar said.

Malaysia celebrated a victory for free speech Friday when a court overturned the arrest of a prominent blogger, saying the government had overstepped its authority under the country’s Internal Security Act. If it stands, the ruling could set a precedent that limits such detentions in future.

Raja Petra Kamarudin is the editor of Malaysia Today, a popular news Web site, and a vocal critic of the current government. He went to jail in September for writing articles that the government said insulted Islam and incited religious hatred. He was arrested under the ISA, a colonial-era law that allows for indefinite detention without trial.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 10 — Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has predicted a dictatorial regime under Prime Minister-designate Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“If he comes into the picture, everything will be clamped down,” he said to reporters in Parliament when told that the Finance Minister plans to roll out the RM7 billion stimulus package which Najib announced in Dewan Rakyat last Tuesday.

“It has not been approved by Parliament. It has not even been tabled,” the Permatang Pauh MP said of the stimulus plan.

“The public is not even aware this is a problem as conveniently most mainstream newspapers have covered this up just to protect him.

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim today blasted the Finance Ministry for its silence on the 2007 Auditor-General’s Report on the multi-billion bailout involving government linked company (GLC), Perwaja Steel Sdn Bhd.

Anwar said the report – which revealed that the government is still paying the bailout grant to Perwaja totaling RM3.9 billion up to last year since 1998 – has yet to be explained or discussed in Parliament.

“The ministry has payed Perwaja billions of ringgit from the Employees Provident Fund in grants without approval of the Parliament and it has yet to be tabled for debate until today,” he told a press conference later.

“I have raised this so many times. The content of the report raised serious concerns over government handling of the matter but the media have consistently played down the issue,” he said.
