Malaysia: IBAHRI Report calls for the repeal of the Internal Security Act used to detain editor Raja Petra

The International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute
(IBAHRI) issued a trial observation report which raises serious
concerns about the effect of the Internal Security Act (ISA) on due
process and rights of defence in Malaysia. The IBAHRI maintains that the
ISA is inappropriate legislation and calls for its repeal. The in-depth
report Malaysia: the delicate balance between security and due process
follows the detention and trial of Raja Petra Kamarudin (Raja Petra),
editor of the online newspaper Malaysia Today, who was accused of
publishing articles on his website which allegedly tarnished the
leadership of Malaysia and maligned Islam.
