FEDERAL COURT LIFTS DATUK DR ZAMBRY & HIS EXCO'S SUSPENSION BY THE PERAK STATE SPEAKER

In a surprising unanimous Federal Court decision today, which has 'raped' the Federal and Perak State Constitutions, made a 'dangerous' ruling that the suspension order by the Perak State Speaker V. Sivakumar, who imposed a suspension on 'unlawful' Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir for 18 months and his Exco members for 12 months over breaches committed which was decided after the Perak State Assembly's Special Privileges Committee inquiry , is unlawful and he has no such powers to do so.

The Federal Court comprising of Court of Appeal president Justice Alauddin Mohd Sheriff which included Chief Judge of Malaya Justice Arifin Zakaria, Federal Court Justices Nik Hashim Nik Ab. Rahman, S. Augustine Paul and Zulkefli Ahmad Makinudin made this unanimous decision which paves the way for Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Dr Zambry to administer the State government and to seek the Sultan’s consent to convene a State Assembly sitting before the May 13 deadline. Should the deadline not be met, it is assumed that the Assembly must be automatically dissolved, making way for a fresh State elections.

This 'unexpected' and 'dangerous' decision would open the floodgates of cases in questioning the Federal and State Constitutions, although the Constitution are unquestionable in any Court of law.

Today's Federal Court decision further erodes the confidence of the people on the judiciary and come next general elections, it is for sure the current 'uncaring, corrupted and arrogant' Barisan Nasional government would be toppled since they have 'masterminded' this decision to remain in power in Perak although the Opposition State leaders have not lawfully resigned.
