Uncle Bernard….that Judge being investigated….wasn’t he the former Principal Legal Officer in the Ministry of Defence who suddenly resigned to do private practice and opened up a law school. As Principal Legal Officer, wasn’t he the one who handled the collision between KD Raja Jarom and the Japanese tanker Shoyu Maru in the Singapore Strait? Was this related to his sudden resignation from the Ministry?
I replied: JJ, I really cannot answer your queries…..let me ask some Naval friends of mine but in the meantime I can contribute something about this Judge:
PUTRAJAYA: To be able to administer justice according to the law is what this retired Court of Appeal Judge described as his memorable moments during his service in the judiciary.
“It is something which is our mission in the judiciary and it is something we hold dear in the course of our work,” said the judge in an interview with Bernama.
He clocked out for the last time as a Court of Appeal judge in August after being in the judiciary for 42 years.
“It’s my mission in life to be a judge and I am happy with what I have contributed to the judiciary.”
“I am proud and delighted to say that I have written almost 1,000 judgments to leave behind in the judiciary for the benefit of the legal profession, the judiciary, the academia and law students.”
Asked to describe his life as a judge, he said that judges led a very disciplined life.
“Upper most in my mind is always the judges’ code of ethics,” he said.
If you cannot piece together the above, let’s wait for the gavel to call the court to order! Cheers JJ.
