I must be honest – I am disappointed.
The tribute to Tun Salleh Abas is rather thin, to me.

1988 is a long way back and memory of that time has faded. But I recall the sense of angst against the dictator at time for his assault on the independence of our judiciary.
It is fortunate that in Pak Lah’s time, the injustice inflicted on Tun Salleh Abas and the other 4 brave justices were remedied some what!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
