I RECENTLY wrote about the Anti-Fake News Act and the Sedition Act. Some readers are asking why I have not been commenting on the country’s current issues, particularly regarding vessels of one type or another.

It’s really an unnecessary law

NOW that the dust has settled after GE14, it is time for me to return to topics that more immediately affect day-to-day life in Malaysia.

Law For Everyone

Ordinary meaning in an extraordinary time

THE months leading up to GE14 were at times a period of uncertainty and confusion for many Malaysians. Through social media and press statements, politicians on both sides made plenty of allegations of wrongdoing. It was very hard for people to decide what to believe.

Lawyers and their social circles
