Malaysian Bar: Disciplinary board will investigate lawyers who hired thugs

The Malaysian Bar today vowed to take action against the lawyers who allegedly used RM150,000 from a private firm to hire youngsters and forcibly occupy a Hindu temple in Subang on Monday, once evidence of professional misconduct has been established by the authorities.

Its president, George Varughese in a statement said the Bar Council will immediately lodge a complaint with the Advocates and Solicitors Disciplinary Board (ASDB) and prosecute the complaint to the fullest extent.

“ASDB — a body independent of the Bar Council, which is statutorily established and tasked to investigate professional misconduct will adjudicate the matter and mete out appropriate disciplinary punishment.

“The Bar Council stands ready to render assistance to the authorities in investigating this matter,” he said.
