KUALA LUMPUR: The Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma) is a good and necessary law, but will be reviewed given past abuses of the law, said Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman.

The Deputy Home Minister said he firmly believes that the law is good, as it enables authorities to tackle serious crimes such as organised crimes and terrorism.
