QC likely to be Lord Lester - link 1
& link 2
By SHAILA KOSHY
Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir and his six exco members have several high profile Queen’s Counsel to choose from for a second opinion on their situation.
The three names bandied about in legal circles here as the possible QC who has been approached are Geoffrey Robertson, Michael Beloff and Lord Lester( pic ) of Herne Hill.
Yesterday, The Star reported that lawyers for Dr Zambry and the six Exco members were seeking a second opinion from a QC in London. (....click on the 2 links above for the full story)
I am told this "MB-in-limbo" Zambry has denied any knowledge to the above reports which appeared on the 23 and 24 February 2009 in the Star. Surely then he must sue the Star for such lies printed if he is to maintain his innocence, right ? But what I am more interested is the out-come of such an expensive expedition to seek the Queen's Council's opinion on local matters ! Were they "shooed off" or was there no case to pursue on legal grounds ?
If I remember correctly the last time when someone went to see the queen, he was condemned to high heaven for running to the English for help and not consulting the courts here in Malaysia. So how now with UMNO doing the "unthinkable "?
Sheeesh.......not shy meh ??
