SUHAKAMAUG 9 — The Human Rights Commission of Malaysia is deeply concerned about the recent series of events in the country against the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), the Attorney General’s Chambers, Bank Negara Malaysia as well as media organisations, among others.

These have included raids, confiscation of investigative materials, the detention, interrogation, dismissal, and/or the transfer of persons who are directly involved in the on-going investigations surrounding the 1Malaysia Development Berhad controversy.

The Commission is concerned that such actions by the authorities are increasingly being viewed both domestically and abroad as a vexatious attempt to intimidate and deliberately interfere in the administration of justice in Malaysia. Read more

Despite the flak she received over her “action plan” to address the issues Malaysia is currently facing, prominent lawyer and activist Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan is determined to push for the restoration of the nation from its crises.

The action plan, which was unveiled last week, was sent to all 222 parliamentarians from both sides of the divide, with Ambiga hoping that civil society would be able to discuss these solutions with them.

Ambiga along with several other NGOs had, in their action plan, proposed that a “national government” be formed beyond party lines while asking Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to take a leave of absence.

She had also warned that if a proper solution is not found in the near future to deal with the situation, the people would have no choice but to take to the streets to voice their displeasure.

Several lawmakers, including those from Barisan Nasional (BN), have since replied to Ambiga, who said some of their responses to the action plan shocked her.

They slammed her for allegedly colluding with opposition MPs to overthrow the current administration under Najib, she said. Read more
