Is what PN law minister Takyuddin said will be taken against those who “belittle” the country’s judicial and legal services, including its officers”

As “law” minister he perhaps knows about a law, unknown to the rest of us, which prohibits forming opinions about the competence or impartiality of Malaysian legal services. If so perhaps he will share that knowledge with the public; by whom he is paid. For the general public’s knowledge there exist only laws, civil and, archaically, criminal, relating to defamation.

If this learned “minister” can take the time, and has the competence, to pursue these “belittlers” in the Courts he may be in both for a disappointment and a needed lesson on the law.

Your views are valuable to us, but Sarawak Report kindly requests that comments be deposited in suitable language and do not support racism or violence or we will be forced to withdraw them from the site.
