Justice Tun Zaki Azmi

Justice Tun Zaki Azmi joined the DIFC Courts in December 2013. He retired as the Chief Justice of Malaysia in September 2011, upon reaching the retirement age of judges of the superior courts in Malaysia. His greatest achievement as the 12th Chief Justice was to clear the outstanding backlog of cases affecting the Malaysian Courts and to reduce the hearing time for newly filed cases, an achievement which was recognised by the World Bank.

He held the post of Chief Justice of Malaysia for three years, having previously served as the President of the Court of Appeal. He was elevated directly as a Federal Judge on September 5, 2007.
