PETALING JAYA: A retired Federal Court judge wants committal proceedings to be instituted against PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang for making a scurrilous attack against a Federal Court bench over their ruling that a Selangor shariah enactment which criminalises unnatural sex was unconstitutional.

Gopal Sri Ram said it was obvious from Hadi’s statement that he had not read Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat’s judgment.

“In my respectful view, his statement is highly contemptuous both of the court and the Federal Constitution. His attack shows his complete disregard for the rule of law,” he told FMT.

Sri Ram was referring to a statement posted by Hadi on his Facebook page two days ago in response to the verdict by a nine-member bench on Feb 25.
