  • It should go back to the time of the sacking of Tun Salleh Abas. The rot started as from that time, after the removal of the excellent judges. The judiciary was no longer independent after that. Only then will be understand the impact of the interference with the judiciary and what it led to. There must be a clearly demarcated point to go back to and that point is the sacking of Tun Salleh Abas. Members of the Cabinet should stand firm on this.
