Conflicting judgment on rally organisers baffles lawyers
Yesterday’s Appeals Court judgment against R Yuneswaran, which found the fine against the organiser of the 505 rally in Johor Baru to be ‘constitutional’, poses a huge question mark on future cases.
Lawyers say the conflicting decisions - from a court of the same stature, ruling on the constitutionality of the same section under the same law - will only befuddle the outcome of other cases of similar nature.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
