BFM looks at issues linked to our Federal Constitution that have been making the headlines together with constitutional lawyer Malik Imtiaz Sarwar.

First, they touch on free speech, while discussing Xavier Jayakumar being investigated under the Sedition Act and Section 233(1) of the Communications and Multimedia Act.

Next, they look at the role of the attorney general, whose responsibilities are provided for in Article 145 of the Federal Constitution.

Finally, they discuss the importance of parliamentary oversight as envisioned in the Constitution, with regard to the recent stimulus packages announced.
