PUTRAJAYA: A former Federal Court judge has been appointed to the Independent Advisory Panel on Bersih 3.0.
A source told the New Straits Times that Tan Sri Nik Hashim Nik Ab Rahman had been selected to fill one of two vacancies after former chief judge of Sabah and Sarawak Tan Sri Steve Shim Lip Kiong and Petronas corporate affairs senior general manager Datuk Medan Abdullah pulled out.
Nik Hashim, who attended yesterday's inquiry, had replaced Shim.
Earlier this month, Shim cited health and Medan heavy workload as reasons for stepping down from the six-member panel set up to investigate allegations raised following the rally on April 28.
Other members are Karangkraf Media Group chief executive officer and founder Datuk Hussamuddin Yaacob, Sin Chew Daily legal adviser Liew Peng Chuan and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia psychology lecturer Prof Dr Ruszmi Ismail.
The panel was formed in May to find out whether there was random, widespread and wanton physical assault and brutality by police on the public and journalists.
It will also review police's standard operating procedure for crowd and assembly control.
