The true colours of the Malaysian Bar

THE Malaysian Bar, a body established under section 41 of the Legal Profession Act 1976 is endowed with perpetual succession, amongst other things. So whilst individual office bearers come and go, the Malaysian Bar remains the same incorporated body to account.

Yet, do the thoughts, statements and roles of its previous individual presidents through the years always remain consistent and take the direction of voicing the cause of justice without regard to their own interests or that of the Bar, uninfluenced by fear or favour, in line with the perpetual succession of the Bar. Of paramount importance is that the Malaysian Bar must not be partisan in politically related matters. Sivarasa's case made that point.
