Dubbed "Environmental Workshop and Capacity Building for POs and IOs" organised by Judiciary-led Sabah State Working Group on the Environment - the second of its kind since April, the two-day event signalled the advent of "Environmental Rule of Law" which is part of the Putrajaya Statement - an output of the First Asia & Pacific International Colloquim on Dec. 12, 2013, attended by Chief Justices from across the region, including Tan Sri Richard Malanjum, Chief Justice of Sabah and Sarawak.
Key elements of the Putrajaya Statement include 'right to healthy environment, adequate and implementable laws, access to justice and information, public participation, accountability, transparency, liability for environmental damages, fair and just enforcement. The Statement borders on mild judicial warning to the region that robust laws, integrated governance structure, better accountability and a co-ordinated sustainability approach are needed for the long term viability of this fastest growing region which faces serious challenges from unsustainable growth, burgeoning populations, unbridled consumption and urbanisation.
Malanjum said the aim of the two-day workshop is to train POs and IOs so that they will know how to better handle cases.
"There were a lot of cases previously where those charged got acquitted not so much because there was no evidence, but because of mishandling of evidence or failure to prosecute properly," Malanjum told Daily Express.
...
That's why so many turn up because they want to get exposure," Malanjum referred to the packed High Court turnout.
"But the NGOs have to come to help the government agencies," he added.

Most interestingly, 'Environmental Rule of Law' is being pushed in Malaysia by our Judiciary, such as the 1st Asia Pacific Colloquium on Environmental Rule of Law, themed 'Defining a New Future for Environmental Justice, Governance and Law', held in Putrajaya, Dec 11-12, 2013, under the patronage of the Chief Justice of Malaysia, Tun Ariffin Zakaria, including an upfront presence of Tan Sri Richard Malanjum, Chief Justice of Sabah and Sarawak, the outcome of which is the 'Putrajaya Statement'.
Malanjum subsequently initiated a similar Judiciary-driven two-day workshop April 17-18 entitled 'Environmental Protection in Sabah & Sarawak - The Way Forward', at the UMS, officiated by Culture, Tourism and Environment Minister, Datuk Seri Panglima Masidi Majun.
At a press conference, Malanjum highlighted the establishment of the Special Environmental Court since January and that he had instructed all judges to dispose environmental cases within four weeks and cited the rarely used 'public interest litigation' as an area to look into with respect to environmental violations.

A five-man bench led by Tan Sri Richard Malanjum said Uthayakumar failed to satisfy that there was injustice against the former ISA detainee. Malanjum, who is also Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak in dismissing the application, added that constitutionality of the law should be addressed "at another forum." Uthayakumar, 51, filed the application on Aug 9, seeking a review of the Federal Court's ruling in view of the recent announcement by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to repeal the Sedition Act. He said the sedition charge filed against him was ultra vires the Federal Constitution and had become obsolete.

SOOK: Chief Justice of Sabah and Sarawak, Tan Sri Richard Malanjum, was satisfied with the encouraging turnout to the mobile court programme at Kg Kuit Lanas, Sook, Saturday.
"It is very good. The reception seems to be very encouraging," he said.
He, however, hoped more people would arrive because there are so many services offered in the event, such as late birth certificate registration, JPN matters, Land and Survey issues, medical as well as dental treatment.
"On top of that, free food and beverages are given to visitors who we understand come from quite a distance from here, and there are a lot of items from the supermarket like food and clothing to be given to the people for free," he said.
Malanjum said the food and drinks are sponsored by the Justices of the Peace Council of Sabah (Majaps) as well as the supermarkets in Kota Kinabalu.
...
Although the free services to the people are not the biggest organised compared to that held in Pensiangan and Pagalungan previously, it is an event which is participated by the most doctors compared to the first two, Malanjum stated.
...
In regards to the court's role in the programme, Malanjum said about 14 officers participated in the service and they handled matters especially with regards to late registration.
...
Malanjum said the idea to organise such a beneficial event is based on their personal experiences growing up living in the village.
"As villagers, we know the problem faced. We all came from the villages so we know what the difficulties and challenges are, like how difficult it is for them to be going to town," he said.
