Press Release

Rock 4 Rights 2 Music Festival: Associate, Assemble and Articulate


The Federal Constitution is the "rule-book" or manual for Malaysia, and preserves the central pillars of democratic governance.  It is the supreme law of the country.  It sets up our system of government and the allocation of power between the Federal Government and the States.  It guarantees certain fundamental liberties and formulates special provisions for certain ethnic communities in multi-religious and multi-racial Malaysia.  The Federal Constitution belongs to every Malaysian, and every Malaysian is a beneficiary of its promise of constitutionalism and democratic governance.

The Malaysian Bar believes all Malaysians need to be informed in order to be able to consider for themselves which viewpoints on the Constitution should be accepted and upheld.  They must also be armed with an understanding of the rights and responsibilities of the institutions of government, and the rights and responsibilities of every Malaysian.  With these as objectives, Bar Council — through its Constitutional Law Committee — launched the "MyConstitution Campaign" on 19 November 2009, a first-of-its-kind nationwide campaign to educate the people of Malaysia about the Federal Constitution. 

One of MyConstitution Campaign's initiatives was the "Rock 4 Rights" ("R4R") music festival held in April 2011 at Fort Cornwallis, Penang, jointly organised by Bar Council and two non-governmental organisations, Frinjan and Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia ("SABM"). 

Following the success of R4R, the Constitutional Law Committee will co-organise the second instalment of this music festival, named "Rock 4 Rights 2" ("R4R2"), with KDU University College (through its Law Department), and assisted by Frinjan. 

R4R2 will take place from 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm on 19 January 2013 (Saturday), at KDU University College, Section 13, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.  The theme — "Associate. Assemble. Articulate." — encapsulates the rights enshrined in Article 10 of the Federal Constitution.  With R4R2, the Malaysian Bar hopes to convey our message of constitutional awareness and appreciation of human rights through the most universal of languages: music.  

Music can be an extremely effective medium to attract youths to, and conscientise them about, the notions of constitutionalism, rights and democratic governance.  Music itself is a form of expression, and the freedom to exercise it is guaranteed and protected by the highest law of the land, the Federal Constitution.  Thus, the union of rights and music is novel yet natural.

Come and associate with this music of choice.  Come and assemble at R4R2.  Most importantly, come and articulate and express yourself in this celebration of fundamental liberties.

Malaysia-Press Release: Malaysian Government Must Act Immediately to Uphold the Rights of Children

Press Release: Malaysian Government Must Act Immediately to Uphold the Rights of Children




_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Press Release

Malaysian Government Must Act Immediately to Uphold the Rights of Children


The Malaysian Bar congratulates the Malaysian Government on securing the election of Yasmeen Shariff as a member of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.  This is the committee that oversees and monitors the implementation of the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child ("CRC") by States Parties.  Malaysia became a State Party to the CRC in January 1995.  The election of Yasmeen Shariff reflects the enormous campaigning and lobbying effort undertaken by Malaysia in the corridors of the United Nations.

Now that a Malaysian will sit on the Committee, we strongly urge the Malaysian Government to quicken the pace of implementation of the CRC in Malaysia.  Malaysia took six years from its accession to the CRC in 1995 before introducing the Child Act 2001.  While the protection elements of the CRC have found their way into the Child Act 2001, it is widely recognised that the Child Act 2001 requires a comprehensive overhaul.  Broader understanding of what constitutes the best interests of the child, which is a core principle of the CRC, the right of a child to be heard in administrative or judicial proceedings in which the child is involved, new developments in relation to children in conflict with the law, and alternatives to the detention of children by way of deviation from the criminal justice system need to be incorporated in a revised Child Act that is clearly overdue.

Our national reporting to the CRC has also been consistently overdue.  Our first national report was due in 1997, but was only presented in 2006.  Our second national report was due in March 2012 but has yet to be presented.  This does not reflect well on Malaysia, which is also a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council and should be exhibiting a better example to other nations.

The Child Act 2001 is also deficient in that it fails to incorporate and protect the civil and political rights of children.  There is no positive assertion of a child's civil and political rights by the Malaysian Government.  The Malaysian Government maintains existing reservations to Article 2 on the prohibition of non-discrimination; Article 7 on birth registration, the right to a name and nationality; Article 14 on the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; Article 28(1)(a) that primary education be made compulsory and available free to all; and Article 37 on the prohibition of torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, and unlawful or arbitrary deprivation of liberty.  This means that Malaysian law does not conform to these provisions.
Malaysia has also enacted legislation that runs counter to the provisions of the CRC.  The recently-introduced Peaceful Assembly Act 2012, for example, denies a child under 15 years of age the right to participate in a peaceful assembly, and any person under 21 years of age from organising a peaceful assembly.  This effectively means that no child can organise a peaceful assembly — a gross violation not only of the provisions of the CRC but also of Article 10 of our Federal Constitution.

Malaysia also fares poorly in the treatment of stateless children, children of indigenous peoples, and children of migrant workers, refugees and asylum seekers.  While the Malaysian Government is not a signatory to international covenants and conventions protecting stateless persons, migrant workers, refugees and asylum seekers, and takes the view that its support for the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is non-binding, it has failed to appreciate that all children, regardless of status, are protected by the CRC.  States Parties like Malaysia thus have an overriding obligation to care for and protect children, and to recognise their rights.

When the Committee on the Rights of the Child reviewed Malaysia in 2007, it made several significant concluding observations about the state of children in Malaysia.  It highlighted situations where children were denied access to education and healthcare.  Five years on, the problem continues.

As the Malaysian Government has expended great effort in getting a Malaysian elected to the Committee, let this effort not be made for vanity but for the sake of children everywhere.  The Malaysian Bar now calls on the Malaysian Government to exert greater effort and to act immediately to protect the rights of all children in Malaysia, regardless of race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national, ethnic or social origin, property, disability, birth or other status.

Now that Malaysia has a representative on the Committee on the Rights of the Child for the first time, children in Malaysia demand no less.
