1948 Sedition Act is valid, Federal Court rules
The Federal Court ruled today that the Sedition Act 1948 is valid under the Federal Constitution.
Chief Justice Arifin Zakaria, who led five-member bench that included the top three in the judiciary, said the intention of the framers of the constitution is to ensure the existing (pre-Merdeka) law is valid and continues to be valid and enforceable.
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.
