No judge available now for Chin Peng's cases

According to Chin Peng's lawyer Darshan Singh Khaira, the hearing of his client's homecoming and other related cases are postponed again until, at least, 30 October, because it is claimed that there is "no judge available" now as the previous one Md. Raus bin Sharif has been " promoted ". Raus had set 28 August as the date for hearing but it was later postponed to 25 September.

Mr. Darshan Singh has also told me that the four defandants named by Chin Peng, viz the Government of Malaysia, Home Affairs Minister, Inspector-General of Police and Chief of Defence Forces have still not filed their affidavits of defence yet. Mr. Darshan Singh is going to issue a public statement tomorrow.
