Law and Government Machinery Not a Tool to Oppress

Last Sunday, 26 August, Lee Hishammuddin Allen & Gledhill (LHAG) consultant and retired Court of Appeal judge Dato’ Seri Mohd Hishamudin Yunus delivered a speech in conjunction with the book launch of Anwar Returns: The Final Twist — The Prosecution and Release of Anwar Ibrahim, written by Mr Mark Trowell QC, at the KL Hilton.

In his speech, Dato’ Seri Mohd Hishamudin Yunus noted that:

“In this edition, Mr Trowell has covered, so painstakingly, so eloquently and in minute details, the latest development of Dato’ Seri Anwar’s ordeal, including his release on 16 May 2018, his audience with His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, and most importantly, the grant of royal pardon.”

He also made the call to:

“Let Mr Trowell’s book serve as a salutary reminder to all Malaysians that the law and government machinery shall never, ever be used as a tool by the powerful to oppress dissent or political opponents.”

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, accompanied by her husband, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim, and the author, graced the occasion as guest of honour.
