Sosma revamp: Rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic?

Recently the Deputy Minister of Law and Institutional Reform, Ramkarpal Singh, said that while there were no plans to repeal the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (Sosma), Putrajaya will instead “improve” the law by introducing several amendments in stages.

Astro Awani’s Melisa Idris speaks to Charles Hector, coordinator of Malaysians Against Death Penalty and Torture (Madpet), and former Petaling Jaya MP Maria Chin, who was detained under Sosma for 10 days.
