|Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin has filed his appeal against the Court of Appeal decision that his rival, BN’s Zambry Abd Kadir, is the legitimate Perak menteri besar.
In applying for the appeal in the Federal Court, the ousted menteri besar has sought a full bench of 11 top judges to hear his case.
His application has been set for hearing in the Federal Court on July 9 and 10.
Nizar arrived at the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya 3.05pm and was followed by his lawyer, Leong Cheok Keng, 10 minutes later.
The ousted MB has filed the appeal despite not being able to obtain the written judgment from the appellate court.
He said the appeal was based on grounds given during the five-minute oral judgment delivered by the three-member Court of Appeal panel on May 22, almost a month ago.
