Malaysia Bar Council EGM ISA

The Malaysia Bar Council will be holding its EGM (Emergency General Meeting) on the ISA (Internal Security Act) on Saturday 20 September 2008. The EGM is related to the recent arrest of RPK (Raja Petra Kamaruddin) of Malaysia Today, a highly popular news blog, Teresa Kok, DAP Member of Parliament and Tan Hoon Cheng, Sin Chew Daily News journalist.

Bar Council statement: ""These people have been arrested on matters that are already in the public domain, and we are incredulous as to how any of these matters justifies the use of the ISA," said Malaysia's Bar Council. We have sufficient provisions in the Penal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code that allow for police investigation in these instances. We have said it again and we will say it again - if there are perceived offences, charge these people and give them their fundamental right to defend themselves."

Note: EGM will be held at the MCA Headquarter in Jalan Ampang, not at Bar Council office at Lebuh Pasar Besar
