Courting problems

I like the following quote:
Justice must not only be done but seen to be done.
At last, now I have the answer as to why the prosecuting team in the Altantuya murder case was changed at the eleventh hour, resulting in the postponement of the trial. But after reading the Attorney-General's statement released yesterday, the removal makes sense.

And personally, I think the A-G made a correct call in this one. It's better to remove them when he did, rather than creating a negative perception to the already high profile case.

I wonder what they were actually thinking when they played badminton together? Anyone can tell you that such action would certainly court problems. It's embarassing to have a report like this in the international media. And The Star's title for this news report is just simply spot-on. All this just highlights our lackadaisal attitude and lack of professionalism.

Salam Kelana,

I hate to be a cynic, but the absurdity of the situation (of being seen together despite it being the most basic ethics conduct) rings a different bell in my mind. But enuff about speculations, yeah?

As for playing badminton, even judges need their exercise :-)

Salam Jie, thanks for dropping a comment. Hehehe.. while I agree that judges need their exercise, I think this judge needs to be sent for a refresher course on Law Ethics 101.
