Dear Members of the Malaysian Bar
In 1935, Tun Mohamed Suffian bin Hashim, one of our most distinguished Lord Presidents, won a Queen’s Scholarship, the first Malay to do so, and went to study law at Gonville and Caius College Cambridge. In the course of a distinguished legal career on his return to Malaya, he was associated with the drafting of the Constitution of Malaysia and became in turn Chief Justice of Malaya and Lord President of the Federal Court. He remains one of the best regarded judges that served on the bench.
Gonville and Caius College wishes to commemorate the memory of this outstanding Malaysian public servant, and the integrity and dedication with which he served his country. It is proposed to endow a Tun Suffian College Lectureship, which will bear his name in perpetuity. In addition to giving lasting recognition to one of the most distinguished Caians of the twentieth century, the endowment will underpin Cambridge’s long and distinctive tradition in the teaching and study of law. Tun Suffian’s name will be associated with other scholars and scientists of great distinction, including Joseph Needham, Francis Crick and Professor Stephen Hawking.
We have already received the generous support of several Malaysians for this cause, but there remains a shortfall. In order to achieve our target, a Caian living in Kuala Lumpur has organised a fundraising dinner held jointly with the Tun Suffian Foundation to help raise further funds. This will be a Royal Charity Dinner to be held at 7:15 pm, at the Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, on 19 Apr 2012 (Thursday), details of which are available here.
You may help establish the Tun Suffian College Lectureship by donating or pledging funds using the attached form or by purchasing a place at the Royal Charity Dinner. All donations made by Malaysian tax residents via the Tun Suffian Foundation are tax deductible.
For further details, please contact Loong Caesar by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at 03-6207 2773 or 012-2974 341.
