[This is Judgment No 2 of two given today. It is imperative that is it is read together with Judgment No 1 where the necessary introductory matters and background are set out. I will not repeat them here. I have checked and approved it under considerable pressure of time and other work, so that it will be available for the Court in Malaysia at the imminent hearing there.]
