MAY DAY
FOR JUSTICE

This website is dedicated to the cause of the former Chief Justice and Lord President of the Supreme Court of Malaysia, Tun Salleh Abas - a true 'hakim rakyat'

“...my pleas, as we all know, fell on deaf ears....in the end, justice is not done because you have a better pleader or a better judge. Justice is not even done because you have better laws. These things are undoubtedly important.”

“But far more important than any of these is that society as a whole believes passionately that every human being deserves to be treated justly..."

".. that when one human being is manifestly denied justice, then we are in real danger of being denied it.”

“And justice cannot be done hastily. And justice cannot be done in the dark.”

“It has to be done with due deliberation, in full view of the people in whose name it is done. For it is done for them.”

    What is we still ride on, we two
    With life forever old yet new
    Changed not in kind but in degree
    The instant made eternity, -
    And heaven just prove that I and she
    Ride, ride together, for ever ride?
