Ultra vires

This can't be happening: the level to which journalism, as defined by Utusan Malaysia, has sank. Don't they even remind their bozos to double-check on things that they do not understand? It's all assumptions ... assume, assume, assume ... making an ASS of themselves!

Here's the quote from The Malaysian Insider:

Mohd Nizam: “Although the orders have been confirmed by the Sultan. If the decision is ultra vires then the decision can be adjudicated by the court.”

Jagdeep then asked Nizam to explain what ultra vires means to the court.

Nizam looking confused and replied: “To insult.”

Jagdeep then told Mohd Nizam that his misunderstanding of the word had caused chaos in the country because the word actually means “beyond the powers”.
