TAWAU: MP Datuk Chua Soon Bui said the new Security Offences Act is not specific especially on the impending threats of terrorism, extremism and organised crime activities that might threaten the security and safety of the public.
She also asked the reason for dangerous arms, weapons or technology that might cause harm to the public not being included in the Act.
In welcoming the repeal of the ISA, Chua asked the Prime Minister whether the Security Offences Act is the only one to replace the ISA because the Prime Minister's pepartment had announced earlier that two new laws would be enacted to replace the ISA.
She said the repeal of the ISA was because it was outdated as Malaysia is no longer facing threats of the communists and some of the clauses under ISA were against human rights especially on the long detention period without trial.
She also referred to special application on "action would be taken if one is to excite disaffection against the Yang di-Pertuan Agorig" whether this application also includes the Sultan or Yang di-Pertua Negeri.
In this respect, she referred to two incidents that happened in Sabah which warrant clarification on the application of the Act.
