Dubbed "Environmental Workshop and ..., 3 Sept 2015 [cached]
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.

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.

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.

It must be absolutely gut wrenching for Tan Sri Richard Malanjun, Chief Justice of Sabah and Sarawak, to accept that a scheme which he introduced to help people who lived in far flung areas of Sabah to obtain their Mykad, etc, was abused by his court officials who falsified the signatures of magistrates and forwarded the documents to the National Registration Department for the issuance of Mykad, etc.

Tan Sri Richard Malanjum will remain as Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak.
