IS THE FEDERAL COURT BOUND BY ITS OWN DECISIONS?

In the Federal Court case of Gnanasekaran a/l Krishnasamy v Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Awam, Malaysia & Anor [2010] 6 MLJ 441, it was held at paragraph [26] that:-

"...After all this court is not necessarily bound by its own earlier decision and may depart from it where necessary (see Tan Ying Hong v Tan Sian San & Ors [2010] 2 MLJ 1 pp 431-432[2010] 2 CLJ 269 439-440)...."
