PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Court has reserved its judgement on an application by the Malaysian Bar and another challenging the appointments of Chief Justice Tun Md Raus Sharif and Court of Appeal President Zulkifli Ahmad Makinudin.

Justice Hasan Lah, who chaired a seven-member bench, adjourned the matter for decision to a date which has yet to be fixed.

The other judges were Justices Zainun Ali, Ramly Ali, Zaharah Ibrahim, Balia Yusof Wahi, Aziah Ali and Alizatul Khair Osman Khairuddin.

The Bar and the Advocates Association of Sarawak (AAS) are challenging the appointment, arguing that it went beyond the legal mandatory retirement age of 66 years and six months.
