Sungai Siput MP D Jeyakumar was successful in his application for leave to appeal to the Federal Court. One has to apply for leave (permission) to appeal to the Federal Court, and the granting of leave is very rare - and, as such this must be seen as a 'victory' - but now, the Federal Court will fix a hearing date to hear the appeal, and decide whether whether to grant them leave to go back to the High Court and argue their case in full.
The Star Report heading is misleading - for this just the leave stage - not a decision after the full hearing of the appeal by the Federal Court.
My hope is that Jeyakumar is also successful in this appeal - Malaysian judiciary must really start playing their 'check and balance' role in government, especially with regards the Judiciary. It is sad that in Malaysia many legal challenges and questions involving the executive decisions/practices have been 'avoided' by the Malaysian judges, preferring rather to dismiss it based on some technical or preliminary objections, rather than just hearing the said applications/claims that is already before the court on merits. (Even now, the case about Lynas, our government lawyers are yet again raising 'preliminary objections' -Lynas - Urgent, so BN government lawyers should withdraw technical objections)
I sincerely hope that our Malaysian Judges and Courts will start being brave, forgetting not that they are really the Malaysian peoples' Judges and Courts, and not the BN government's Judges and Court, and that they play an important role in a true democracy - being the third branch of government... I appreciate that there is a lot of factors that worry many judges - the fear of transfer, the fear of not being elevated, the fear that after retirement they may not get chosen as Commissioners here and there, or Directors ...or Consultants (noting that judges current salary and pension is very low compared to many other jurisdictions) - So, be brave my judges and act justly guided by your conscience and positive values...
