PAS Seeks Judicial Review On Assembly Law

PAS has filed a judicial review seeking a declaration that the prime minister and the federal government exceeded or abused their powers in tabling the Peaceful Assembly Bill 2011, which it claims to be unconstitutional.

The three applicants - PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu, treasurer Dr Hatta Ramli and central committee member Dzulkefly Ahmad - are also seeking a restraining order to stop the respondents from allowing the Bill to be passed at the Dewan Negara.

As an alternative to the restraining order, the trio are also seeking a court order to compel the respondents to either withdraw the Bill or make amendments to the Bill, in line with the Federal Constitution.
