It's still detention without trial, Zahid told


DAP national chairperson Karpal Singh has slammed Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for being unable to differentiate between a trial and a judicial review.

He said that Ahmad Zahid was wrong by claiming that there was no detention without trial under the proposed amendments of Prevention of Crime Act 1959.

"He (Ahmad Zahid) should seek legal advice before commenting," he said during a press conference at the sidelines of the party's central executive committee (CEC) re-election.

Ahmad Zahid denied the existence of provisions for detention without trial under the proposed amendments to the PCA.

He said those detained under registrable offences were allowed to challenge the three-member Crime Prevention Board's decision.

But Karpal said that as the detainees would not be brought to the court to prove their charges, it was still without trial.
