KUALA LUMPUR: Some parts of the National Security Council (NSC) Act are in contempt of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s powers, a former air force officer said today.

Former Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) officer Lt Col (Rtd) Mohamad Daud Sulaiman said: “That is contempt of the institution, an insult.

He was speaking at the Civil Society Conference on National Security here on Wednesday.

Commenting on the impact of the NSC on the military forces, he said it was clearly stated in the Federal Constitution that the King and the Conference of Rulers were in charge of the military.

“If we look at the provisions (in the NSC), it uses a lot of military terms and this is very dangerous,” Daud said.

He said part four of the NSC says the King does not have operational command of the military.

He said this was posted on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section of the NSC’s official website. Read more
