Peaceful Assembly Bill

The passage of the highly restrictive Peaceful Assembly Bill by the Senate on 20 December 2011 over the strong opposition of civil society and lawyers casts serious doubt over the government’s sincerity of its announced intention to implement reforms to ensure greater enjoyment of civil liberties for Malaysians, said the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders, a joint programme of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) and the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) on 21 December.
