Bar Council says ‘shocked’ with sex video screening in court

The magistrate’s court should not have screened the sex video allegedly featuring Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim yesterday because the “Datuk T” trio had already pleaded guilty to the crime, says the Bar Council.

Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee described that the court’s decision in allowing the video to be shown as “shocking” and “extraordinary.”

He stressed that there was no reason to do since those accused of screening the video had readily admitted to the crime.

“There is no need to because they have already pleaded guilty; I am surprised why the sex video was shown in court.

“This is an extraordinary procedure, I am shocked as to why it happened... if a person has already pleaded guilty there is no need to (reveal the evidence),” Lim (picture) told The Malaysian Insider.

The lawyer said the court’s action was inconsistent with standard procedures in such cases, where evidence is only revealed during the course of a full trial and when the accused maintains his or her innocence.

Former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and former Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuib Lazim, all of whom make up the “Datuk T” trio, were fined yesterday for their involvement in the screening of the sex video at Carcosa Seri Negara Hotel here on March 21.

Abdul Rahim was hit with a RM1,000 fine for abetting Shazryl and Shuib, who were fined RM3,000 and RM1,500 respectively. Elaborating further, Lim said the punishment meted out was relevant to the offence committed by the three.

“I have no problem with the punishment, it is just the sex video screening which is an issue,” he added.

Kes Datuk T: Majlis Peguam terkejut tayang video seks di mahkamah

Sementara itu,Naib Presiden PKR N. Surendran mendakwa langkah Mahkamah Majistret menayangkan semula ramakan video seks dalam prosiding kes trio Datuk T, yang didakwa mirip Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, dilihat semata-mata mahu menjatuhkan imej Ketua Pembangkang itu.

Beliau juga tidak menolak hukuman ringan yang dikenakan terhadap trio Datuk T dipengaruhi keputusan Jabatan Peguam Negara dan polis.

Tegas Surendran, tindakan Mahkamah Majistret membenarkan tayangan semula rakaman video seks itu walaupun ketiga-tiga Datuk T sudah mengaku bersalah bertentangan dengan sistem perundangan.

“Kejadian yang berlaku itu membuktikan penglibatan pihak berkuasa tertinggi termasuk polis dan kamar Peguam Negara dalam satu konspirasi untuk memfitnah Anwar Ibrahim sama ada dalam politik atau secara peribadi.

“Tindakan mereka ini amat tidak munasabah dan ia juga sangat mengganggu sistem perundangan. Percubaan mereka untuk berpura-pura bersikap adil dan telus tidak munasabah dan kami yakin rakyat tidak akan percaya dengan apa yang dilakukan,” katanya yang juga seorang peguam dalam satu kenyataan.

I'm new to building sites and I was wondering if having your site title related to your articles and other content really that crucial? I notice your title, "Blogger: tumpang sekole...? " does appear to be spot on with what your website is about but yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is important and all.
However imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips
to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in
its niche. Fantastic blog!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you've
done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
