(Perak) Court issues warrants of arrests for Osman February 10, 2009Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Human Rights, Malaysia, Politics.
(Correction: Arrest warrant only for Osman)
While all eyes are trained at either the MB’s office or the Perak palace, in Ipoh’s Magistrates Court, warrants of arrests were apparently issued for Jamaluddin and Osman for their the latter’s no-show for their corruption trials which is supposed to commence today.
According to their former lawyers (‘former’ – because they were so disgusted with the antics of the two, that they discharged themselves this morning), the two guys’ new lawyer told the court that they were ‘sick’.
But when asked for MCs, the lawyer couldn’t produce them. (The Star reported that Jamaluddin’s lawyer did give an MC)
So their former lawyers SMS-ed over the news: That the judge issued the arrest warrant.
Which goes to show – one should show better respect to the Courts, whether millionaire, pauper or politician.
PS. Aren’t they both supposed to be at Kuala Kangsar, having tea and scones?
