Legally right, morally wrong

  • Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden & Anwar Ibrahim (MT)
Is there a dearth of lawyers for Anwar, or is he just trolling for more sympathy votes.

When I wrote about former Solicitor-General Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden's decision to join Anwar's defence team I never mentioned that it was legally wrong for him to do so. I am looking at it from moral point of view not legal point of view. The Bar Council was quick in defending him.

 

Obviously, the Bar Council is not concerned with moral obligations as long as it serves a political purpose and one that disparages the establishment, which was the whole idea played behind the curtain.

Anwar Ibrahim is surrounded by a bunch of more than eager lawyers to defend him as their future investment. Should Anwar be successful in taking over Putrajaya that investment would yield pretty good dividends. Why would he need an ex solicitor-general who is not even known as a hot-shot legal prosecutor or a well-grounded lawyer to be on his defence team?
