High Court Judge Muhammad Kamil Awang’s judgment corroborates Justice Chin’s statement

 

Referring to Justice Chin’s statement that he was informed by former High Court Judge Muhammad Kamil Awang that he had received a telephone call from the then Chief Justice asking him to dismiss an election petition in 2001 for the Likas by-elections, Ambiga said:

This corroborates a similar disclosure made by Muhammad Kamil himself in his judgment on that election petition, namely in the case of Harris Mohd Salleh vs The Returning Officer, Ismail Majin & Ors [2001] 3 CLJ 161.”

In the case, the judge had said: “The only guide to a man is his conscience, the only shield to his memory is the rectitude and the sincerity of his action.

“In my view, it is an insult to one’s intelligence to be given a directive over the phone that these petitions should be struck off without a hearing, and above all, it is with prescience conscience that I heard these petitions.’’
