Malaysia-Forum Siri Pemikiran Kritis | Crime — A Case for Preventive Detention? (21 Sept 2013)

Forum Siri Pemikiran Kritis | Crime — A Case for Preventive Detention? (21 Sept 2013)





_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Circular No 199/2013
Dated 19 Sept 2013
To Members of the Malaysian Bar
Forum Siri Pemikiran Kritis
Crime — A Case for Preventive Detention? (21 Sept 2013)
The Siri Pemikiran Kritis ("SPK") is a flagship series organised by the Bar Council National Young Lawyers Committee ("NYLC") to promote discussion on civil liberties, with a legal twist.  Every SPK forum is designed to initiate critical and mature thinking that encourages responsible and measured debate and discussion amongst the speakers and the attendees.
 
The Emergency (Public Order and Prevention of Crime) Ordinance 1969 ("EO") was a legislation promulgated under a Declaration of Emergency.  When Parliament passed a motion to end the three existing Declarations of Emergency, it set into motion the constitutional mechanism which rendered the EO inoperative in June 2012.
The rise in crime, especially violent crimes, has led to calls for the return of the EO or similar type of preventive detention laws to deal with crime.  The authorities are also relying on the Prevention of Crime Act 1959 to deal with gang-related activities.
Whilst there is widespread support for the authorities to deal with the crime situation, civil liberties and human rights advocates are against any form of preventive detention legislation to deal with crime.
Members and pupils in chambers are cordially invited to this SPK forum.  Admission is free, and the details of the upcoming forum are as follows:
Date:              21 Sept 2013 (Saturday)
Time:              9:30 am
Venue:            KL Bar Auditorium, 10th Floor, Wisma Kraftangan, 9 Jalan Tun Perak, 50050 Kuala Lumpur
Registration:    Admission is free but advance registration is required
CPD Code:      21092013/BC/BC1160/3
CPD Points:    Three
The purpose and intent of the forum is to have a general and critical discussion on whether there is a case for preventive detention-type laws to deal with crime.
The speakers include:
(1) Datuk Dr Khaw Lake Tee, Vice-Chair,  Human Rights Commission of Malaysia ("SUHAKAM");
(2) Dr P Sundramoorthy, Principal Investigator, Research Team on Crime and Policing, School of Social Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia;
(3) Amer Hamzah b Arshad, Advocate and Solicitor; and
(4) Tan Sri Zaman Khan, Former Chief, Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department.
For more details or to register, kindly contact Zaena Nair Padmanathan (03-2050 2091; zaena.nair@malaysianbar.org.my) or Mohd Fazli Rosman (03-2050 2105; fazli@malaysianbar.org.my).

The event will feature well-known speakers such as Dr Azmi Sharom, Associate Professor of Law, University of Malaya; Tommy Thomas, Advocate and Solicitor, High Court of Malaya; and Wan Saiful Wan Jan, CEO of IDEAS; and moderated by Ambiga Sreenevasan, former President of the Malaysian Bar.
Tickets are available at RM200 each from the MCCHR, www.loyarbarang.com and all event partners.  All proceeds from ticket sales and donations will go towards supporting programmes carried out by the MCCHR.
