    Dear Steven,

    Are you able to enlighten us on the rationale for and progress of Chief Justice Tun Arifin Zakaria’s proposal for the separation of judicial and legal services under the Judicial and Legal Services Commission which are both currently headed by the Attorney General, and if the Malaysian Bar or Bar Council has a role in this pursuit?

    Thank you.

    I note that the current AG was formerly a Bar Council member. If you were AG tomorrow, what are the first 3 things you will do?

    There is a proposal by the Government to amend the LPA which appear to have the effect of curtailing the independence of the Bar. How can the Malaysian Bar stop the government from interfering with its elections, business and generally its independence?  Is there anything that members of the public can do to help protect the Malaysian Bar’s independence?

    Dear Mr Steven Thiru,
    1. Many members of the Bar Council have over the years been elevated to the Bench. If you are invited to be a judge, will you accept?

    2. I note that the current AG was formerly a Bar Council member. If you were AG tomorrow, what are the first 3 things you will do?

    What are some of the difficult or unpopular decisions you have to make as President of the Malaysian Bar or decisions which the Bar Council had to make? And why was it difficult?  Was it worth it?
