Indelible indelible ink court disclaims power to declare a mistrial
Major Zaidi Ahmad, RMAF
The Royal Malaysian Air Force court-martial today ruled that it lacked the power to declare a mistrial. At issue is whether the president of the court should be disqualified for making disparaging remarks about the accused, shown at left, on Facebook. The court-martial directed that the defense answer the government's case. Judicial review proceedings are pending in the High Court.
