Deny link to videotape, CJ and lawyer urged

(23/10/2007, From The Malaysian Bar website) A veteran lawyer who is also an MP has challenged Chief Justice Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim and a prominent lawyer to publicly deny that they are in the alleged “judge-brokering” videotape.

Karpal Singh (DAP – Bukit Gelugor) alleged that the tape was of a seditious nature and questioned why no action had been taken against the person who was shown allegedly brokering the deal.

“I challenge him (the Chief Justice) to deny (it) himself and not through Nazri (Minister in the Prime Min-ister's Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz) that he is the one at the other end of the phone.

“Why did he (Ahmad Fairuz) deny (the allegation) through the executive and not the judiciary? Where is the separation of powers?” he said when debating the Supply Bill 2008.

Karpal Singh also questioned why a royal commission of inquiry was not set up to investigate the video clip instead of having a three-member panel.

Karpal Singh claimed that the judiciary had not recovered since the 1988 judicial crisis and “is now worse.”
