Bar Council should move a motion to censure its President

Mr Ragunath Kesavan, the President of Malaysian Bar, has made a press statement yesterday (25-01-2011) HERE and HERE, trying so hard to exonerate YB Karpal Singh of all faults pertaining to YB Karpal Singh’s outbursts in 1997 in Parliament and in DAP Ceramah in 1978 that he had evidence of YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s involvement in homosexual activities. He purportedly made the said press statement on behalf of the Malaysian Bar.  I have made several postings on the issue, HERE and HERE.

I have reason to believe that the Bar Council did not hold any meeting to discuss about matters involving YB Karpal Singh’s professionalism as a lawyer or moral standing as defence counsel in the YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy trial and/or to take a political stand that “YB Karpal Singh has neither contravened the Legal Profession Act 1976 nor any rules of etiquette.”

Since there was no formal complaint lodged against YB Karpal Singh, there was no necessity for Mr Ragunath Kesavan to react in such an emotional manner in total disregards of the image and the integrity of Malaysian Bar.

Mr Ragunath Kesavan’s said press statement was most mischievous whereby he hid under the “skirt” of Bar Council in the hope of currying political favours. He may have political ambitions, which is his absolute right, but as President of Malaysian Bar, he should not allow his said ambitions to drag the Malaysian Bar into controversies and prejudge issues when there was no disciplinary hearing of any sort against YB Karpal Singh’s professionalism or moral standing.

If we were to accept Mr Ragunath Kesavan’s said press statement on matters of this nature then the Bar Council should embark on disbanding its Disciplinary Committee and allowing its President to summarily decide whether a lawyer was in breach of professional etiquette or their moral standing and hand out punishment accordingly.

It would appear that Mr Ragunath Kesavan was aspiring to be the great defender of YB Karpal Singh’s political integrity.  Given YB Karpal Singh’s vast political experiences, I believe YB Karpal Singh is more than capable to fight for his political integrities and he doesn’t need a political novice like Mr Ragunath Kesavan to give him a helping hand to lift him up from the brink.  It was so clear that Mr Ragunath Kesavan’s said press statement was politically motivated to subvert the course of justice by prejudging issues, which have never been deliberated in any meeting whether disciplinary in nature or otherwise.

If Mr Ragunath Kesavan has political ambitions then he should resign as the President of the Malaysian Bar and take a plunge into the political arena. With his past records on issuing press statements, I am sure that certain political leaders will welcome him with open arms like what had happened in the case of Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.

Under circumstances, the Bar Council should act as a professional body and move a motion of censure against its President for being so emotional and reckless in pursuit of his political ambition failing which the Bar Council will lose its professional and moral standing to represent the Malaysian Bar.

    Dear YB.

    I cannot get through the link to Malaysian Bar press statement. Then I try to find on their website. Could not find it too.
    Anyway I agree with you that the Bar, not the bartender, as in a disco or night club, where we can get drunk, should not be involved in politic. How can they expect people to respect them, when they can manipulate facts & twist their way around in court, to their benefit.
    He purportedly made the said press statement on behalf of the Malaysian Bar, without having a meeting with its members to discuss matters involving YB Karpal Singh’s professionalism as a lawyer or moral standing as defence counsel of DS Anwar Ibrahim?

    With so many delays & postponement of trial, is it fair to victim he is said to have ‘screwed’?

    It seems the law is in favour to whom who can twist their tongue well.

    Tenang Election >> Ng, who joined the PKR in 1999, said he quit because party de facto leader
    Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was “leading the party to nowhere”.

    PM Razak said the freedom of religion practised in the country proved that the government is
    fair to all during a Thaipusam celebration. He said “we can see today Hindu devotees celebrate the
    Thaipusam freely throughout the country” at the Subramaniya Swami Devasthanam Temple.

    http://tonypua.blogspot.com/2011/01/religious-freedom-in-malaysia-really.html

    say ” If Najib truly believe in the “freedom of religion”, he must immediately instruct the Home
    Affairs Minister, Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein to retract the Government’s appeal
    against the December 2009 High Court decision to permit the use of the term “Allah” by the non-Muslim community.

    Our opinion : Yes , Allah is God for Islam religion ,
    but my religion is Buddhist and when in temple ,
    my God is Buddha . So is it really non-Muslim
    need to use word Allah ha ha
    and since when Tony Pua heard somebody in Thaipusam celebration , complaint the Allah word issue ?

    I am a member of the Bar. It is true that he is playing political games to further other objectives. Definitely not in the interests of the Malaysian Bar otherwise he would not have made such a stupid statement.

    Quite rightly the Bar Council members should censure him for making statement committing the Bar without holding any meeting to discuss.

    Ragu should join the DAP or PKR to further his own cause.

    What is different between DAP Msia First and 1Malaysia =

    God in your religion also not important as long as can reach Putrajaya

    Based on subsidies given to the IPPs, the BN government should immediately reduce
    our electricity rates by at least 17%

    http://tonypua.blogspot.com/2011/01/overpriced-electricity-despite-billions.html

    Our opinion : If we suggest elec.rates should reduce at least 27% ( plus 10% ) , we think the result
    rakyat will get is get 0% reduce . Firstly we still need to thanks former PM Pak Lah
    who give free of charge for those who use less than RM 20 electricity , extend by PM Najib .

    Secondly , Tony Pua only highlight one side – why big subsidy to IPP but he didnt tell
    that 13 August 2008 is D-Day for IPP to pay the first 12 instalment of windfall taxes to Govt
    = Result = YTL Power RM 50 mil vs Malakoff RM 250 mil .

    ——————–

    Tony Pua say ” When we compare the electricity tariffs between the two countries, Malaysia’s average rate of RM31.31/kWh is only 8% cheaper than that of Thailand’s at RM34.11/kWh ”

    We say ( to easy understand ) , the cheapest electricity rate now is O.218 per unit
    So RM 20 means the most poor user can use 91 units . Hope Government can extend up to 100 units ( the best 110 units )

    Tony Pua say ” PEMANDU has proposed that electricity rates be increased every 6 months!
    Our question do DAP banyak-banyak MP oppose it or just politicking it ?

    Tony Pua say ” The Tenang electorate must take this one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take a stand and
    express Malaysians’ frustration with the intolerable increase and artificially inflated
    prices for basic goods and services. ”

    WE take example food price in our another friends area , DAP Kota Melaka .
    Food price also increase , so what does DAP do ? my friend ask . His solution : No starbuck everyday , Restaurant A food price about increase from RM 4.50 to RM 5.00 ( no free soup )
    so go to Restaurant B ( food price between RM 3-RM 4.00 with free soup ) .

    Bar Council President should be neutral in his statement. He should not prejudge issues when the issues have not been decided by the Disciplinary Committee. It was obvious that Ragunath is trying to play politics and making the Bar Council looks stupid.

    I also know that the Bar Council did not hold any meeting to decide on this issue regarding Karpal Singh. Out of the blue this smart boy came out to defend his master. He is making the Bar council as a joke. He should join the political parties like DAP and PKR. But remember Zaid Ibrahim as an example!

    We think the issue is some DAP-company never deliver flag after receive money , WSK Services fake invoice , ADUN-ADUN under Tony Pua
    never give free bag , used to buat longkang which cannot solve flood problem …. but create more flood problem ha ha
    although longkang-loangkang is council job

    ha ha toll company profit is part of economy . The question is the company which make billions of profit
    doing any social corporate responbility ??? eg YB Wee good question about Astro profit

    ” This is not the way for EPF to generate returns for the people,” . Generate returns also consider robbing ???
    If EPF invest company make profit not correct , then EPF invest in company make loss is correct , agree ??? ha ha

    b) Tony Pua forget in his http://tonypua.blogspot.com/2009/07/highway-buy-back-reply-to-critics.html
    say ” We have proposed that the Government should buy back all shares of PLUS Expressways Bhd which it does not already own and take over its existing asset backed liabilities for the approximate

    told his secret ” I helped to craft the privatize PLUS proposal ” when MP Tony Pua persuaded me to lend a hand for a better Malaysia.
    So what is better Msia ? Have to wait PR takeover Putrajaya ? But PR memang will fail to takeover Putrajaya , cannot better Msia ?

    d) PLUS had said that it would hold its EGM to vote on the offer by UEM-EPF at 10am on Feb 23, 2011.

    I wish that in this country someone who gets elected as a representative of the people should honorably step-down if he/she cannot work with the party leadership. This is simply because people voted for the party and not the individual. Shame on those still hanging on and enjoying the perks.

    The state assembly had on Nov 9 last year approved a supplementary budget of RM391mil for MBI to buy over the debts of Talam , a major player in the property sector.

    The state government was criticised for bailing out Talam by using a scheme known as “round-tripping” after the state government borrowed the money to take over the developer’s debts .

    “ MBI is not bailing out Talam , ” Khalid said , adding that the takeover was to ensure that more cash could be pumped into the state .

    http://www.starproperty.my/PropertyScene/PropertyScene/8728/0/0 …. MB: S’gor made RM400m from land transfers

    Ha ha how could MB Selangor said
    more cash could be pumped into the state when approved a supplementary budget of RM391mil

    Under an earlier agreement with the previous state government, the deal involved a flood mitigation project in the form of an 18km canal linking Sungai Klang and Sungai Langat . However, the new state government decided that there was no need for the flood mitigation project.

    Dengar tak there is ” no need for the flood mitigation project ”

    Ha ha Tony Pua is surprised Khir Toyo is worried about
    Selangor going bankrupt despite a fairly balanced budget unlike the federal budget in his previous Twitter …..
    Balance budget have 2 types . The 1st Type is your earn RM 1,800 and expenses also RM 1,800
    But we believe the Selangor PR is second type ( more dangerous then BN Federal Budget )
    meaning you are jobless and yet buy a big house , new loan instalment RM 3,000 per month and then only hope to find
    a new job to pay u RM 3,000.00 per month .
    How could say it is balanced budget when a supplement budget is approved ?

    It was a mission set by Khir Toyo himself to make Selangor ‘zero squatters’ in line with national policy Wawasan 2020. The opposition criticised Khir Toyo for approving housing project in squatters’ area and forcing the residents to move out from their illegal homes.

    However , the new Menteri Besar from opposition party, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim reported said the effort to reduce the number of squatters and to free them from the clutches of poverty, should continue . Dengar tak ?

    But the half-correct is still better than Tony Pua maintain ” DAP is perfect , it has no corruption .
    What done by Ronnie Liu is not corruption ha ha ” If BN really no corruption , then why need MACC ? The question is does the MACC done their job at which level ???
    Perhaps DAPutrajaya will say there is no need MACC because PRasuah dont even have 1% rasuah …. you believe ? , if
    yes , i also can fly like AirAsia

    Over the past 2 years, we saw how UMNO attempted to monopolise the use of “Allah” for Muslims only
    and prevent Malay-speaking Christians and Sikhs from using the term for their religious prayers.

    Allah , Buddha , and other Gods , but as non-muslim , i also know to speak in Malay , choose Buddha and
    we hope Tony Pua wont compaint when one day Muslim people ajak Tony Pua marilah puasa bersama-sama .

    Tony Pua say ” UMNO leaders have also sensationalised DAP MP Teo Nie Ching’s attempts to foster greater
    ties with the Muslim community by visiting mosques and taking part in their community activities. ”

    But why can’t UMNO hightlight even one mini topic when DAP Hannah Yeoh also gives fund to surau ? ha ha

    UMNO leaders have also promoted extremism by supporting activities promoting hatred among the various races and religions, such as the “cow-head protests” against the construction Hindu temple in a Muslim-majority residential area.

    So do Tony Pua dare to told public one more story ”
    Man who torched himself over Puchong temple store demolition dies , he leaves behind a wife and five children .
    On Nov 8 , when 200 Subang Jaya Municipal Council ( MPSJ ) workers, police and RELA members began the demolishing the store linked to the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple on Chakragunasegaran shouted don’t demolish, set himself ablaze and then fainted. Members of the public rushed to put out the blaze but he suffered severe burns .
    It is understood that MPSJ had , on Oct 26 2010 , given the temple committee seven days to move out as a kindergarten was slotted to be built on the store’s site which was part of the land belonging to the adjacent Tamil primary school. ”
    The power of Lee Kee Hiong from Kajang extend to MBSJ ????? And this Tamil school land belongs to Selangor PR ???? “

    A MP of Parliament is to represent the people first and not solely the political party. If the party has failed in its directions and not showing anything to address it, the MP must stand up against it. Ultimately, the MP is responsible to its constituents.

    Lets not go further just look at the elections process of PKR. Was there any semblance of democratic process? We all know better. It must be unthinkable that MP must blindly follow a political regardless of its directions even though it will be against the interests of the people. Stop being emotional and let your heart to rule your head. At the end the people will suffer. From the comments so far I have not seen the blind PR supporters applied reasoning to counter arguments except personal attacks thinking.

    former Bar Council president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan, former Court of Appeal judge NH Chan and former Deputy Prime minister Tun Musa Hitam ) .

    Even Nov 18 — Chong Kok Siong, the group’s co-ordinator, told reporters today that it will be a three-month-long campaign to get 100,000 signatures
    ( seeking public support to set up a royal commission of inquiry ) , to be submitted to PM Najib ,
    2010 Nov 18 – Dec 18 – 2011 Jan 18 – Feb 18 , means in fact , they do yet get actually 100000 signatures,
    in this case , how they proposes nominess to RCI ?
    And again why take 3 months , DAP dont have 100,000 members ?????

    Lee Lan said that while her family was comforted by the RCI probe into Beng Hock’s death,
    they urged the prime minister to now increase the panel to nine members to include these candidates.
    Much like another DAP brainwash

    MP Serdang even now say verdict which ruled out both suicide and homicide in Beng Hock’s death.
    but as we know the verdict ruled NOT suicide and also not homocide .

    according to what law , no discount should be allowed for any legal charges . We surprise because we know there is some lawyer firm giving discount but each on different way . Some immediately give discount while some some only give when you ask ?
