Hindraf founder P. Uthayakumar has filed a notice of motion to the High Court today for an order to set up a Royal Commission of Inquiry on prisons’ treatment of inmates.

Uthayakumar named Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his deputy Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and prisons director-general Datuk Seri Zulkifli Omar as respondents.

Three others named in the notice filed through Messrs Kumar Hashimah & Co, are Kajang Prison director Abdul Wahab Abdul Kassim, attorney-general and Malaysian government.

The lawyer is also seeking a declaration that keeping inmates with tuberculosis in the same cell with other prisoners, and allowing prisoners with AIDS to share nail clippers with other inmates contravened the Prisons Act 1995. – Bernama, October 2, 2015.
