UPDATE, 13 Nov – Debater jambeaux, in totality, said: “I admire your sense of forgiveness. I, however, smell a big fairy tale coming to Malaysians by the end of the year. They have had enough time to cook up a story with all the delays. Thanks, in part, to the new AG.”
I am touched by that comment. Let me reiterate that this is not so much about being forgiving although as human being, more so if one is a Muslim, he or she is encouraged to be forgiving.
We must learn to be forgiving but never to be forgetful. It is when we forget that we repeat our past mistakes. When I said I am giving the AG the benefit of the doubt, I'm merely stating the obvious.
I'm aware that there are a lot of people out there who distrust and disrespect the AG because he was appointed by the Prime Minister in a very suspicious circumstances. And it is for this reason that he should by words and deeds, dispel this notion.
He should prove that he is not there to serve or protect Mohd Najib but to serve and protect the sanctity of the Constitution.
I have been informed that people who once served the AG's chamber and who still maintain close relationship with the department that Mohamed Affendi is aware of public sentiments. He had received many letters and messages imploring to do the right thing.
I would like to consider his statement to Malaysian Insider as an indication that he acknowledges the feedbacks he received since his appointment in July.
Intellectually, I place him above the Prime Minister. It isn't easy to rise from an ordinary lawyer to the post of Federal Court judge. He must have done the right thing to be recognised and made a member of the highest court in the land.
He, more than Mohd Najib, should be concerned about his reputation and legacy. I'm sure he doesn't want to be known as Mohd Najib's AG and subject the legacy and good name of his keturunan to public ridicule.
I'm sure, with our prayers and our understanding, he would do the right thing. He would transform himself from the perception that he is the Prime Minister's AG into the AG of the country, the servant of the people and an officer of the royal court.
If he doesn't, he stands condemned as a stooge, which I'm sure he is not and does not want to be so late in his legal career.
