Talk on Compulsory Attendance Order: An Alternative to Imprisonment
(12 Aug 2011)

Members of the Malaysian Bar are cordially invited to a talk entitled "Compulsory Attendance Order: An Alternative to Imprisonment" by Tuan Abdul Aziz Mohamad, Deputy Commissioner of Parole, Prison Department.

The details of the event are as follows:

Date:         12 Aug 2011 (Friday)
Time:         5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Venue:       Bar Council Auditorium

The Compulsory Attendance Order ("CAO"), which is provided for under the Offenders Compulsory Attendance Act 1954 ("Act"), is a court order that requires offenders convicted of certain offences to attend a specified centre daily, and undertake compulsory work for a period not exceeding three months and not more than four hours everyday.  Since its introduction in September 2010, the CAO has helped reduce prison congestion and lowered offender management costs. 

The objective of this talk is to inform Members about the CAO and the provisions of the Act so that they may consider more options when representing clients.
