The giants are passing, leaving only the pygmies in their wake
Rosli Dahlan, lawyer and senior partner in Lee Hishammuddin Allen & Gledhill:
The country has lost an exemplary and courageous son. A giant in court and in Parliament, never once flinching in his belief in the principles of democracy, justice and the rule of law which had been costly to his person and career, and yet he stood firm.
He will take his place in history as one of the finest patriots that this country has ever produced, regardless that he was recently convicted and fined RM4,000 for sedition.
His eulogy will note that his sudden passing is divine intervention against those who seek to put him behind bars by making an appeal against inadequate sentencing.
Shame on the AG (attorney-general). The giants are passing, leaving only pygmies in their wake
