The Joker in Multiple Versions

One of my favorite villains of all time is the Joker (left).
Behind that permanent sad smile etched on a face that shows composed rage, and accompanied by that devil-may-care laughter is somebody I can relate to.
Anyway, do check out every version of the Joker ranked from worst to best?
In response to Sarawak Report’s expose on the RM9.5 million being allegedly transferred to lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah from Najib Razak’s private account between August 2013 and March 2014 – Anwar Ibrahim filed two suits: One on June 09 to quash his sodomy conviction on grounds that the court did not come to a just decision, and the second on June 15 to compel both Najib and Shafee to show their bank statements.

This was in relation to the claim that Shafee (right) was the prosecutor appointed by the attorney-general to prosecute Anwar in the Court of Appeals and the Federal Court; and that the alleged payments to him by Najib "were at all times concealed from the relevant Courts and the plaintiff".
The legal papers also mentioned that these payments disqualify Shafee from being an independent prosecutor.
Therefore, on June 21, the Kuala Lumpur High Court ordered the government to reply to Anwar's application by July 12 as well as directed the UMNO-linked Shafee to file his response by July 19. And the next case management has been fixed for August 03.

It’s strange that Najib (right) was not represented and Justice Kamaludin Md Said made no mention of the prime minister either.
In the meantime, the Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar had energetically dismissed the Sarawak Report allegation as mere hearsay. Idiot!
