It was not a problem that was created by him but the PM acted with grace and humilty when he offered the judges who were wronged ex-gratia payments to ease their pain.
If you watched his speech, he was sincere in his desire to improve the tattered image of the Judiciary.
I found it rather strange that the DPM now has to come up with his own statement that it was never an apology.
We all know that but why undo unnecessarily the good work that the PM is trying to do? No need to complicate things further by describing the JAC as being merely advisory when the scope of the commission has not been established.
Sounds like trying to sabotage your boss.
