ADVOCATES ASSOCIATION OF SARAWAK AGM - LEGAL & OTHER THOUGHTS by George Lo
 
 

I have just received a notice from the Kuching branch of the AAS informing me that it will be holding its AGM on this Saturday, 11 October 2008. This AGM is significant because it is an election year. Elections are held bi-annually. I have also received a number of calls and emails expressing support for me if I decide to offer myself as a candidate.

I believe it is because the members are fed up with the reticence of the AAS in speaking up against injustice and the attacks on the integrity and independence of the judiciary. The West Malaysian Bar under the strong leadership of Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan regularly and boldly speaks up on issues that affect justice and the independence of the judiciary. Our Sabahan counterpart occasionally speaks up. Our AAS is so quiet that you'd think we don't exist. It is time for change. The Sarawak Bar cannot continue to be the rearguard in the fight against injustice.

Well done George.Change is indeed in the air not only for the Bar
council but i do hope that it will to political parties as well...including and especially SUPP which will be as good as a dead chicken before the next election..... if everything still remains ....status quo .The MCA election held yesterday is good....the fact that you are the brother of the Party President,An MP and A minister are heavy luggage.I salute the MCA delegates who are shining examples to all SUPP delegates coming to meet in December 2008 in Kuching ....Sa'ati
