Much as I dislike Anwar Ibrahim I despise the way the court had dealt with him after the guilty verdict was pronounced. I was truly shocked by the indecent haste the court had demanded of the defence to submit the mitigation - a f**king mere one hour.
Why not provide the defence with the weekend to prepare a reasonable mitigation? It has been in this unfair denial that the court discredited itself. As TMI editorial put it succinctly, The less said [of the judiciary], the better.
It was hardly surprising that Anwar Ibrahim shouted out in anger to the court to “Just do it now!”, referring to his sentencing.
I do not wish to comment anymore on the trial.
