Lawyer Matthias Chang this morning challenged Justice Ian Chin of the Sarawak High Courts to an open debate within seven day for his allegations of “thinly veiled threats” against former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
Otherwise, risk by being demanded by an “Officer of the court” like Matthias Chang to be sacked from the esteemed job at the bench by the Chief Justice. He also made an open call to Chief Justice Tun Abdul Hamid Mohamad to verify Chin’s claim in the open as he also attended the special meeting with Dr. Mahathir, then.
“Outrageous accusations lodged against him (Dr. Mahathir), (so) those in the know must come forward” urging CJ Hamid and other Judges to come forward and either corroborate Chin’s allegations or retired Court of Appeal Judge Dato’ Shaik Daud Ismail’s and another serving Judge’s, as per reported in the papers.
“These are serious charges. Chin used language unbecoming of a Judge”, reiterated Chang again today. He also questioned the timing of this, now, as previously also raised by BigDogDotCom.
On the same note, he also charged Minister in the Prime Minister’s department Dato’ Zaid Ibrahim as “Corrupt, no transparency, no integrity , more of a crony of the Prime Minister!”.
