Police Act amendments under scrutiny

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

The Police (Amendment) Bill 2024 was passed with little fanfare in the House of Representatives but has since sparked significant debate.

The bill also increases penalties for several offences, including obstructing police orders and failing to comply with instructions with fines potentially reaching up to RM10,000 and up to two years’ imprisonment.

Do the Police Act amendments adequately balance considerations of civil liberty versus national security? BFM discusses this with lawyer Kee Shu Min.
