Bar Council mulls probe against lawyers in Bala case

The Bar Council is prepared to establish an independent body to examine the professional conduct of the lawyers allegedly involved in preparing the second statutory declaration (SD) for former private-eye P Balasubramaniam, if there is “compelling evidence” to do so.

NONEIn a statement today, council president Lim Chee Wee (left)urged those who have the facts and evidence to come forward and lodge an official complaint with the disciplinary board.

If there is compelling evidence of any professional misconduct, he said, a statute-based independent body will investigate the professional conduct of the lawyers named and discipline them.

“The Bar Council will render assistance to the public in this regard in having any such matters properly directed for investigations by the disciplinary board,” Lim said, noting that the council views this issue seriously.

Lim also said that carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan, who made the recent expose surrounding the second SD, has claimed that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is aware of the matter, but has covered it up and closed its investigation on this.

“We would urge the MACC to shed light on the reasons for closing its file on the investigations conducted earlier,” he said.
NONEThe role of the lawyers - apparently a senior lawyer and his son - was revealed in a series of explosive revelations by Deepak (right) who has claimed to be personally involved in the "flipping" of Balasubramaniam.

The one-time private investigator had signed the first SD which linked Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu, who was murdered.

One lawyer's name was supposedly mentioned by Deepak in a video interview with PAS organ Harakah which was posted on YouTube, with the name edited out.

In the interview, Deepak had related how the senior lawyer had drafted and prepared the document along with the latter’s son, though only his son came to see the other parties involved at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur where Balasubramaniam was allegedly “kept”.

Haris’ report received

The senior lawyer was fingered, though not named, by human rights activist Haris Ibrahim in his blog-post four days ago.

NONEHaris (right) lodged a report with the Bar Council yesterday, seeking that the identity of the lawyers be established.

Former federal minister Zaid Ibrahim has also pointed out in his blog that the senior lawyer in question was the same one who sits on one of five MACC panels.

Lim said the council has noted the media reports on Deepak's interview.

“We have also received yesterday a letter from Haris requesting the Bar Council to launch an investigation to identify the lawyer(s) concerned, when it appears to us that Haris may know the identity of these lawyers,” added Lim.

“This has caused unnecessary speculation and confusion.”

Malaysiakini is withholding the name of the senior lawyer and his son pending their response to inquiries.
TO KNOW WHO HE IS we surf the news and this a (part)as it appears in other medias:
Tan Sri Dato' Abraham graduated with an LLB (Hons) from the Queen Mary College, University of London in 1968. He was called by the Honourable Society of Middle Temple as a Barrister at Law in May 1969, and was admitted as an Advocate & Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya in February 1970.
The man who created the second SD for Bala is more powerful than Lingam.
Lingam can only control the Chief Justice and wag his tail for Mahathir Kutty.
But Cecil only has to sneeze and Mahathir Kutty, Pak Lah, Najib, Nor Yakob, Daim and certain Royalty will wet their pants.
Complaining to Bar Council is just a waste of time for Cecil can tighten the rope he holds.
Unless of course if the people he controls decide to kill him off first.
Fuad was bummed off with few loose screw and bomb in Sabah, Jalil was drugged and cemented alive in Hong Kong, while Altantuya with C4 in Selangor. 
So how will these UMNO Mafia take care of Cecil?
