Don't abuse preventive laws
The Government did abuse the Internal Security Act (ISA) and Emergency Ordinance (EO). It detained people and they could not charge the Government in court.
Now, the Government has repealed ISO and EO. As Malaysians face various crimes such as the murder of the founder of Am Bank yesterday, the police believe that hard criminals who were previously detained under EO, have returned to crimes. They form syndicates.
"We intend to bring it (existing laws), for the next parliamentary session the provisions that can strengthen the capabilities of the police to act (against criminals)," says Datuk Seri Najib. We don't know what extra power will be given to the police.
Although the Prime Minister states that the Government is committed to upholding human rights, we reiterate that the police must not abuse the extra power.
