Cherie Blair, who is a prominent London lawyer, is seeking to represent Fawziah Holdings Sdn. Bhd. in a civil case that touches on transparency in government contracts.
The High Court on June 7 prohibited Fawziah from using Blair to argue the case in court, saying local lawyers are capable of handling the matter. Fawziah appealed the ruling in the Federal Court, where Blair appeared Wednesday, according to the AP.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
