Last week at the High Court of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur, I attended a matter for a colleague. The case was fixed before a High Court Judge in Chambers (in his room).
At 930am, the Interpreter (Judge’s assistant) called the case up.
Me: May it please my Lord, XES for the Plaintiff. With me, my learned friend, Mr Sinka Linggam for the Defendant.
S.K Linggam: Correct, correct, correct my Lord.
Me: Today is fixed for hearing of Enclosure 18, the Defendant’s application to strike out the Plaintiffs claim…
*t000t* *t000t* *t000t*
S.K Linggam: Ohhhh..shitt…my phone is ringing…
S.K Linggam: My apologies my Lord……
Judge: Oh, it’s ok..I like music! ok proceed!
