Responses to Bar’s resolution for resignation

After the 15 May 2009 Bar resolution, calling for the resignation of the Home Minister, the IGP and the OCPD, the Government responses have been, well, expected.We have our Inspector-General of Police asking the Bar to do some soul-searching first and questioned whether the lawyers think that they are above the law.

We then have our de facto Minister of Law accusing the Bar, by passing the resolution, of trying to intimidate the enforcement authorities from discharging their duties.

It is clear that the Government has taken the position that nothing wrong was done. There has been no denouncement of the treatment of the lawyers, no acknowledgment that there is something wrong with the system, and that now, the Bar is in the wrong for passing such a resolution. Ridiculous.
