Barua council AnwarKalau dahulu BARua Council telah membuat resolusi untuk melarang bekas-bekas hakim yang sudah pencen dari menjadi peguam bela di mahkamah kerana dibimbangi ianya akan mempengaruhi hakim-hakim yang bersidang dari merasa takut kepada “bos-bos” mereka dahulu.

Dipetik laporan berita pada tahun 2013:

Council president Christopher Leong … said it was also against judicial convention for retired judges to appear subsequently as counsel in court although this was not part of the judges’ code of ethics.

It also posed the question of whether they could have an undue advantage when appearing before judges who were once their subordinates.

Apakah larangan tersebut ditangguh apabila suasana menyebelahi mereka? Mereka MEMBISU?

Benarkah BARua Council sememangnya BARUA?

*istilah Barua Council bagi mengantikan Bar Council saya petik dari salah satu komen di FB saya.
