[8 March 2013 Update (11.30pm) with Amended Motion here. Earlier, TMI reported about it here and Malaysiakini here.]

A motion has been filed by 14 lawyers calling on the Bar Council to establish an Independent Investigation Committee to enquire into PI Bala’s statutory declaration purportedly affirmed on 4 July 2008.

Without fear or favour, and in keeping with traditions and spirit of an independent Bar, conscientious lawyers have moved to have a committee assist the Bar Council in its investigations regarding one (or two) of the Malaysian Bar’s own. Hopefully, the Council will support the motion.

The motion may be downloaded here.

We are in for an exciting debate at the AGM on 16 March 2013!
