POTA

Amnesty International (AI) Malaysia has expressed its opposition to the Prevention of Terrorism Act (Pota) and Sedition Act 1948, which it said were serious violations of human rights.
The revival of detention without trial through the Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) points to a government thumbing its nose at calls for greater protection of fundamental rights in Malaysia.
A new law that would allow terrorism suspects in Malaysia to be held indefinitely without charge, trial or judicial review, is a shocking onslaught against human rights and the rule of law, said Amnesty International.
