Malaysian govt to repeal Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has said, his government will repeal the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (SOSMA). 

Speaking at a programme in Shah Alam, the state capital of Selangor, the Prime Minister said, the government would adhere to the rule of law by enforcing laws that would protect the people. 

He said the people will be protected under laws that are fair and any offences will be brought before and decided by the court. 

SOSMA, which was introduced during former Prime minister Najib Razak’s administration in 2012, allowed the government to arrest anyone without having to go to court. 

It also allows for suspects to be detained without charge for 28 days and can incur a lengthy prison sentence.
