Stop 114A Team Meets with the Senate

Two weeks after meeting with Opposition MPs on Section 114A, CIJ held another Parliamentary briefing session on 9 July to discuss the ill-conceived amendment with a few members of the Senate.

Led by CIJ Executive Officer Masjaliza Hamzah and lawyer Foong Cheng Leong, the exchange revolved around the question of how to prevent the amendment from being gazetted.

Ultimately, those in attendance agreed that greater transparency in lawmaking processes is key to ensuring public knowledge of proposed amendments and newly introduced laws.
