Malaysia: Catholic from Sabah Appointed Top Judge

Malanjum, 65, a Catholic from the Kadazandusun community in Sabah state, acted as the chief judge of Sabah and Sarawak after being elevated to the Federal Court in 2005.

“He has done a lot of work on trying to bring justice to the poor,” said a friend who declined to be named. “The native courts that are based in the rural areas of Borneo are his brainchild. He once explained to me that justice was hard to come by for the poor and it had been occupying his mind for a long time.”
