Kes Sodomi Kian Mencemaskan Anwar…
The PKR vice-president said after walking out from the Federal Court registrar’s chambers, where the court fixed Aug 8 for the case management of Anwar’s appeal and also the prosecution’s cross appeal to enhance his five-year jail sentence.
According to another of Anwar’s lawyers, Ramkarpal Singh, the registrar also set the same date for the case management on Anwar’s application to disqualify Umno lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, who was appointed ad hoc deputy public prosecutor to lead Putrajaya’s case to overturn the sodomy acquittal.
On March 7, the Court of Appeal overturned Anwar’s acquittal in 2012 for sodomy and sentenced him to five years’ jail.
Ramkarpal filed an appeal against the conviction on March 10. Anwar is free pending appeal.
Anwar had also made three applications to disqualify Shafee, with the third one pending at the Federal Court.
Surendran told reporters that the indication was that the court wanted to fix the hearing dates by September.
“There should not be any unusual rush to hear the appeal like what happened at the Court of Appeal the last time.
Sebab itulah Surendran turut dipanggil untuk check-and-balance kerja yang dibuat Ramkarpal.
Kenapa nampak cemas semacam Pak Sheikh kali ini?
Ada yang menganggu pemikiran?
