In Defence of the Bar Council Resolution Demanding Resignations

At the Bar Council Extraordinary General Meeting held on 15 May 2009, the Bar resolved to demand for the resignations of the Minister for Home Affairs, the Inspector-General of Police, Officer in Charge of Police District (OCPD) ACP Wan Abdul Bari bin Wan Abdul Khalid and DSP Jude Pereira of the Brickfields police. I spoke in favour of the resolution calling for the resignation at the EGM and now I am writing in defence of it. The irony is that the attack against the said resolution has not just come from outside the Bar but from within as well.
