Even if the statement is obiter, there will be pressure on the authorities to do something about it, just like what happened in Parti Liyani's case. I share the same sentiments as you that the previous trainees should not be scrutinised as they are entitled to believe their SS is qualified.

But the statutory provision clearly provides that a legal practitioner can only be qualified as a SS if he/she holds a PC in force of at least 5 years out of 7 years. If there is inaction, it may send the wrong signal that it can be ignored. The authorities are caught between a rock and a hard place.
