The Federal Court judgement this afternoon is a blow for natives turning to the courts to safeguard their NCR land.
The two related cases were heard in the Federal Court on 1 March 2011 (see video clip above).
It is a Chief Justice Zaki’s last judgment before retirement.
Yesterday, controversy erupted when it was reported that Najib visited the Palace of Justice for a meeting with top judges that included both the new chief justice, Ariffin Zakaria, and his outgoing counterpart, Zaki. Both Najib and Zaki later said there was nothing out of the ordinary about the meeting.
