On 22/04/2014(Tuesday) 9am, SMSL attended a hearing at the Federal Court in Putrajaya for the following cases:-

1. Taufeq Teng & 6 Others: To apply for a motion of leave in the Federal court to review the dismissal of leave by the Appellate court on a point of law;

2. Ismail Haji Bakar: To move a motion of leave in the Federal Court to review the dismissal of leave by the Appellate Court on the recusal of Judge Datuk Seri Mariana Yahya

3. Tan Bun Teet: same as above.

The first case is an application for leave in the Federal Court on a point of law on the dismissal of leave by both the High Court and the Appellate Court. The leave application both at Kuantan High Court and the Appellate Court were unsuccessful. It was an application for leave to file a Judicial Review (JR) against the issuance of TOL by the Government on 3rd September 2013.

The second and third cases are similarly applications for leave in the Federal Court on a point of law which has yet to be interpreted. Earlier in the Kuantan High Court, SMSL has applied for leave to recuse Judge Datuk Seri Mariana Yahya. It was granted and the case was heard by the judge herself. She dismissed the case on the ground that she is capable of upholding justice though she is personally involved in the application. Therefore, SMSL proceeded to file for an appeal against Judge Mariana’s decision in the Appellate Court. It was subsequently dismissed.

All 3 cases were heard by a panel of 5 judges at the Putrajaya’s Palace of Justice at around 11am and the verdict was read out after lunch at 1.15pm where the judges were of the view that there was nothing that had not been interpreted in terms of the laws involved. They dismissed all the cases with cost of RM25,000.00 each to the AGC and Lynas.

The attempt by the 7 residents of Kuantan to ask for leave to file a JR on the issuance of TOL has finally reached the end of the road.

On the other hand the JR cases of both Haji Ismail and Tan Bun Teet will be heard at the Kuantan High on the 8th May 2014.

As this shall be the finale of the legal saga against the award of TOL, all are urged to be there to witness the hearing!
