KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa (pic) said public presence during the caning of a syariah offender such as what happened in Terengganu on Monday (Sept 3) must be reconsidered.

"It (the provision) must be looked at, if the public can be present. The two or three officials present can be considered public. To me, it is a matter of technicality and can be debated," he said.
