RM10.5 million for six former judges

By : V. Vasudevan and Eileen Ng

"...Mahfuz Omar (Pas-Pokok Sena) said while he did not deny that the judges deserved the money, he did not understand why they were given both ex gratia and pensions.

Wee Choo Keong (PKR-Wangsa Maju) said "those who were sacked automatically lose their pensions".

In reply, Nazri said the six were not sacked but were asked to retire early.

"As a result, they would still be entitled to pensions."

Khalid Abdul Samad (Pas-Shah Alam) claimed that the payments proved executive interference in the judiciary.

"At the end of the day, we must ask ourselves, what are the lessons learnt?

"The amount is subjective, but what is important is to admit that at that time, there was abuse of power by the executive branch towards the judiciary," he said..."

Lawatan Kerja ke Kilang Carlsberg

Tajuk posting saya kali ini barangkali akan memeranjatkan sesetengah pihak. Lanjutan daripada perbincangan berhubung Terminal Bas Shah Alam, saya bersama beberapa Ahli Majlis MBSA telah melawat kilang Carlsberg pada hari Khamis 5 Ogos, jam 3 petang. Kami disambut oleh Dato’ Chin Voon Loong, Timbalan Pengarah Urusan Syarikat berkenaan. Beliau memberikan penjelasan dan latar belakang syarikat serta prestasi perniagaannya semenjak ianya mula beroperasi. Untuk makluman semua, kilang Carlsberg Shah Alam telah mula beroperasi pada tahun 1972, iaitu 38 tahun dahulu. Ia merupakan di antara kilang yang terawal di kawasan tersebut dan semasa ianya dibina, hanya hutan dan belukar di kelilingnya.
