Bar Council sepatutnya mendokong undang-undang dan perlembagaan sebaliknya menggalakkan tindakan "melawan" dan "melanggar undang-undang malah menyediakan peguan untuk mereka yang ditahan... BODOH bukan! kerana menggalakkan rakyat melanggar undang-undang bukan menghormati undang-undang selaras dengan prinsip awal penubuhan Bar Council...
The Bar Council not only sucks, it's unprofessional, partial, bias and working for the oppositions.
This is what happen when you put half-past-six lawyers as leaders who lack professional ethic.
The Bar Council should have been an independent body and distant itself from politics. In almost everything it does, it seems to be giving undivided support to the opposition Pakatan Rakyat.
Bar Council Chairman Lim Chee Wee is a disgrace calling for an EGM in seeking a public apology from the Home Minister and IGP for alleged use of excessive force against Bersih protesters even before receiving full report of the investigation by Suhakam, Bar observers and an independent panel appointed by the Home Ministry.
Since it is so anti-government and so much interested in politics it should apply to the Register Of Societies to turn the Bar Council into a political party.
It is obvious, the Bar Council has, unashamedly, become an extension and mouthpiece of the opposition Pakatan Rakyat.
How else could it explain calling for an EGM blaming the police of brutality when many videos evidenced provocation was first started by protesters by breaking down barriers where court order has been obtained making Dataran Merdeka a "no man's land" that day.
Videos taken also showed the crowd attacking a police car, pelleting it with stones, shoes and whatever objects available to them which eventually sent the car out of control and the mob overturning the police car.
The Bar Council chose to ignore all these awful acts of the law breakers, instead, chose to support them, threatening the police with legal actions.
Not all its members share the Bar Council Chairman's sentiment as evidenced by the video below.
Has the Bar Council also been hijacked by politicians and being used as their campaign machinery?
Maybe, it's high time the Register of Societies (not sure under which jurisdiction they are registered) write a show cause letter to the Bar Council why they should not be de-registered?
