Judge VT Singham retires after delivering
High Court judge Datuk V. T. Singham (picture) leaves the judiciary today, on his 65th birthday, a year before his term is up.
The decision sent shockwaves through the legal community as it comes two days after he delivered a damning judgment against the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and the police force over the death of detainee A. Kugan three years ago.
Sources within the legal fraternity told The Malaysian Insider that Singham, who was known as a straight-talking judge, had been bypassed for promotion numerous times.
Many of his peers who were made Judicial Commissioners with him more than 10 years ago, have been elevated to the Court of Appeal and the Federal Court.
This left Singham behind as the most senior High Court judge in Malaysia.
The Malaysian Insider learnt that he sent in his papers for optional retirement sometime back.
Singham himself kept mum on his resignation this morning and it was business as usual as he entertained reporters who wanted copies of his written judgment on the landmark Kugan case, where he awarded the mother of the victim more than RM800,000.
But word that this is his last day trickled outside into the noisy corridors of the Kuala Lumpur court complex.
A well-respected judge, Singham’s legal mind was a walking library on tap for many other judges. One described him as a "good reference person".
He was a lawyer before he became a judicial commissioner. He also had a brief stint as a reporter.
Sources say the bachelor is a religious man who will now devote his time to pilgrimages and travelling.
He has served as High Court judge in Temerloh, Taiping, Ipoh, Kuantan and Kuala Lumpur. – June 28, 2013.-malaysian insider
