Cops submit proposals on laws to be amended, repealed


The police have presented several proposals on the decision to formulate, abolish, update and amend more than 100 laws in the coming Parliamentary session on Monday.

Inspector-general of police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the proposals were submitted in written as well as verbal forms through a special committee established six months ago.

Speaking at a press conference in Bukit Aman, Fuzi said the committee comprised senior officers, legal officers, ordinary officers, as well as state police chiefs and retired officers.

In January, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Liew Vui Keong announced that over 100 laws would be formulated, amended, updated and abolished.

Apart from that, Fuzi said the police also proposed to the government to pay more attention to the welfare of officers and personnel.

Among the list of laws concerned are the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012, Prevention of Crime Act 1959, Prevention of Terrorism Act 2015, Sedition Act 1948, Printing Presses and Publication Act 1984 and the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.

Other laws include the Communications and Multimedia Commission Act 1998, Employment Act 1955, Universities and University Colleges Act 1971, Sexual Harassment Bill, Child Act 2001 and Child Care Centre Act 1984.
