The situation in Malaysia has worsened. The Government seems to be taking its time.
We sent a letter to the Bar Council this morning, urging that the Council take steps to have certain court proceedings cancelled. This is what we wrote to the Council:
To immediately write to (and do its utmost lobbying with) the Chief Justice to cancel all court proceedings which require the physical attendance of people. It may be for one week at first. Then, to monitor for regular updates. The usual e-reviews or e-mentions or e-case managements can go on. Alternatively, if there is a system in place to have hearings online, then that could be put in place.
The letter is here.
