Seasoned criminal litigation lawyer Baljit Singh Sidhu gets a two-year extension to sit on a Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) panel.
Baljit from Shukor Baljit and Partners was first appointed to the MACC Consultation and Prevention of Corruption Panel (PPPR) last year.
He received a letter signed by Prime Minister Mohd Najib Razak for a two-year extension. MACC had recently organised an official ceremony to recognise their appointment.
Among others, Baljit is the deputy presidency of SSU Kelab Aman and a member of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) disciplinary committee.
Baljit, who was admitted to the High Court of Malaya in 1997, holds the distinction of being the first Sikh to be conferred the honorary police rank of Assistant Commissioner (ACP) by the Malaysian police in 2012.
He was also appointed as an adjunct professor at University Sultan Zainal Abidin Terengganu’s law faculty since 2013 and University Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) since 2014.
