Tomorrow at the J W Marriott, the Malaysian Bar Council plays host to Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and former Lord President Tun Salleh Abas at a dinner.
Datuk George Seah, one of the 5 Federal Court judges who were suspended in 1988, is also expected to attend the dinner.
Seah and the 4 judges were suspended for granting Salleh an interlocutory order against the tribunal which tried him for misconduct.
In other words, for coming to his defence. The others were (the late) Tan Sri Wan Sulaiman Pawanteh, Tan Sri Mohamed Azmi, (the late) Tan Sri Abdoolcader and Tan Sri Wan Hamzah.
Azmi, Abdoolcader and Wan Hamzah were later reinstated.
Wan Sulaiman will be represented by a family member.
Also at the dinner will be de facto Law Minister Zaid Ibrahim who is said to have been instrumental in having the dinner organised.
The judges will be there with their families.
The Prime Minister will deliver a speech, "Delivery of Justice: A Renewal of Trust".
How will justice be delivered, as Rocky had asked in his bru, or, as someone had prodded - will justice be delivered at all?
Will the event be a circus, yet another had wondered.
Can't quite say, can we? But it will definitely a momentous, if not, historic occasion.
I will be there.
