Immigration D-G’s threat to revoke foreign nationals’ passes over negative statements ‘extreme’ but legal, say lawyers
Malay Mail | Under the Immigration Act 1959/63, the director general may revoke the passes of foreign nationals. Lawyer New Sin Yew agreed with others that this must be done with reason. There is no law that criminalises speech that damages Malaysia’s image. Criminal sanctions are meant to address more extreme actions such as incitement to violence.
