High Court: Immigration illegally detained three stateless children, Child Act also protects non-citizens
Malay Mail | In a groundbreaking ruling, the KL High Court decided that Malaysia’s Child Act 2001 also protects non-citizen children. A child has to be brought before a Court for Children within 24 hours of being arrested. Lawyer New Sin Yew lauded this judgment; a detention centre is no place for a child. He was assisted by Beatrice Chin, Allyna Ng, and Nur Izni Syazwani Ahmad.
