THE Federal Court will soon decide on the constitutionality of denying bail to terror suspects after two conflicting high court rulings on the issue recently.

This morning, a bail application by DAP’s Seremban Jaya assemblyman was postponed after the constitutionality of his arrest was fast-tracked to the Federal Court.

  • It appears all the judges in the lower courts lack the gumption to deliver a ruling and have all passed the buck to the 9 member panel of the Federal Court. Safety in numbers comes to mind.

    • Justice Nazlan Ghazali had the balls to deliver a ruling that deemed SOSMA unconstitutional. He incidentally is hearing Najib's SRC trial.

      However, despite that precedent ruling, Justice Mohd. Zaini Mazlan ruled that SOSMA was constitutional.
      He incidentally is the judge hearing Rosmah's corruption trial and is the same judge that ruled in favor of UMNO and MCA and against the MACC in the latter's bid to seize 1MDB money laundered through their accounts. A ruling that baffled and confounded the legal fraternity and the public alike.

      We live in strange and dangerous times.

    • We got to keep a close watch on this High Coutt Judge, Zaini Mazlan. He may be the one with the deep state connection.
