7 Judges Elevated to Federal Court & Court of Appeal

PUTRAJAYA: Judges must increase the quality of their judgements to maintain the public's confidence in the judiciary, says Chief Justice Tun Arifin Zakaria.

"I must stress the importance of judges preparing detailed grounds of judgement based on just and solid principles of law," said the top judge.
Arifin stressed that it was especially important for Federal and Court of Appeal judges as their decisions were binding for the lower courts.
He also urged judges not to deny parties their right to be heard in court, in the name of a prompt resolution.
"I don't want to hear any more complaints about judges losing their patience, just to speed up the disposal of cases," said Arifin, in his speech at an elevation ceremony at the Palace of Justice, here.
He said the criteria for appointment of judges included accomplishments in resolving cases, quality of judgements, integrity, knowledge in the law, capabilities in the field judicial administration, professional experience and deliver of judgements.

"The judges appointed today (Monday) meet the requirements as per the Judicial Appointments Commission Act 2009. This amply proves that the appointment of a judge doesn't rely solely on their seniority," he said.


On Monday, three Court of Appeal judges were elevated to the apex court.
They are Datuk Seri Mohamed Apandi Ali, 63, Datuk Seri Abu Samah Nordin, 62, and Datuk Ramly Ali, 60.
Four High Court judges were also sworn in to the Court of Appeal, including Datuk Seri Zakaria Sam, 61, Datuk Abang Iskandar Abang Hashim, Datuk Umi Kalthum Abdul Majid, 59, and Datuk Varghese George Varughese.
