    Sabah Native Court of Appeal Law Report courtesy of Sabah Law Association 

    Sabah Law Association presented me with this law report containing judgements of Native Court of Appeal, a special Court that deals with Sabah natives’ customary issues. It was a gift for speaking at our Malaysian Bar and Sabah Law Association joint event. The cases revealed disputes regarding wrongful trespass by animals, destruction of bamboo trees, theft of animals, damages for embarrassing someone, right to harvest bird nests, inheritance of customary lands and also marriage issues. Many of these cases involved the payment of damages by way of sogit – usually a cow or other animals. Failure to pay sogit can put the wrongdoer in jail! Sabah Law Association painstakingly went through many old files to extract the judgments. Many of these cases were presided by local Judges such as Richard Malanjum, Ian Chin and Nurchaya Haji Arshad.

    View from Horizon Hotel, Kota Kinabalu 

    Great view of the city. Sabah Law Association booked this RM300 a night for my talk to the Sabahan lawyers. Very nice spacious room. Last night, Suaran (another KL lawyer) and I took a cab to Fook Yuen, Damai. The 5 minutes drive costs us RM20! But the roti kahwin and teh madras was worth it! Hotel Horizon charges RM120 for a one way trip to the airport. It only takes 15 minutes to get there!
