High judicial errors and inconsistencies


CAPITAL punishment cases in Malaysia are blighted by a high incidence of judicial errors and inconsistencies, a study indicated, suggesting the need for the abolition of capital punishment.

According to the study by the Penang Institute, 27.7% or more than a quarter of High Court cases were overturned by the Court of Appeal while the Federal Court overturned the judgement for half of the 20 cases heard at the Court of Appeal.
