This is the latest court transcript of the sodomy trials dated 19 July 2010 taken from the blog malaysianstory.wordpress.com...The Recorded Truth 19 July 2010. Seems the trial is set to go for the whole of the month of August. No more delays. William Gladstone says "Justice Delayed is Justice Denied".
Latest news from Utusan man inside the WP Courts today 19 July 2010:
- Mahkamah membuat keputusan setelah mendengar permohonan penangguhan kes yang dibuat oleh peguam bela Anwar, Datuk Param Cumaraswamy untuk menangguhkan kes kepada 2 Ogos.
- Menurut Hakim Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd. Diah, mahkamah akan meneruskan perbicaraan pada 2 Ogos dan tidak mahu menangguhkan lagi kes perbicaraan Anwar ini.
- Salah seorang peguam bela Anwar, Sankaran Nair ketika bercakap kepada pemberita di sini berkata, sekiranya Karpal masih belum pulih maka salah seorang daripada peguam bela Anwar akan mengambil alih tugas Karpal selaku peguam bela utama.
Well there you are folks, speculations that the Anwar sodomy trials will be postponed due to Mr Karpal's ill health have come true. Today, Anwar gets a 2 weeks postponement. I hope that Mr Karpal my favourite Khalsa warrior who turned 70 last week will get well soon, having said that a formidable defence team having the likes of Datuk Param Cumaraswamy in their midst will be more than capable to defend Anwar if Mr Karpal do not recover completely.
A quote from Sir P. Hastings:
"There is one essential feature in every trial that is only too well forgotten. In the interest of the community the one matter of importance is that all parties should be satisfied that they have had a fair and impartial trial"
Kudos to YA Datuk Mohamad Zabidin, as the trial judge in the ongoing Anwar sodomy trial, it is clear that he is making sure that Anwar gets a fair and impartial trial.
