The grounds of appeal of the Federal Court
We had previously uploaded the Grounds of Judgment of the Court of Appeal here.
Today, about two weeks after delivering its decision on 24th June 2014, the Federal Court has released the Grounds of Judgment of the specially enlarged panel of 7 Judges who heard and dismissed (4-3) the application for leave to appeal by the Titular Roman Catholic Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur.
Again, in anticipation of the Judiciary website becoming overloaded, we have taken the liberty of uploding the judgments here as well.
The grounds are in the following links:-
- Majority Judgment by the Chief Justice, with whom the President of the Court of Appeal, the Chief Judge of Malaya and Justice Suriyadi Halim Omar agreed, dismissing the application for leave.
- Dissenting Judgment by the Chief Justice of Sabah & Sarawak
- Dissenting Judgment by Justice Zainun Ali
- Dissenting Judgment by Justice Jeffery Tan Kok Wha
