Lawyer Gurbachan Singh and his legal firm have been found by the Federal Court to have betrayed the trust of their clients in the purchase of more than 1,400 hectares of estate land in Perak about 20 years ago.
A five-man bench chaired by Tan Sri Richard Malanjum on November 27 said the prominent lawyer should have acted in good faith and refrained from making profit from the trust placed in him in the purchase of the land in Hutan Melintang, read a court judgement on the case posted on the Malaysian judiciary website.
"He should not have placed himself in a position where his duty and his interest conflicted.
Gurbachan was part of the legal team which represented Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in his first sodomy charge in 1999.
Malanjum said a committee representing the group had approached Gurbachan to obtain his professional services to ensure claims of the purchasers of the land were secured.
"In this case, the evidence adduced and on the given facts and circumstances, the relationship between Gurbachan and the purchasers could only be properly characterised as fiduciary,"  Malanjum said in 101-page judgement.
