Prevention Of Terrorism Act - ISA 2.0?

Last November, Prime Minister Najib Razak proposed that a new law against militancy and terrorism be tabled at the next Parliament session. This was followed by a recent announcement by Home Minister, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi,confirming that a new act will be tabled in Parliament this month. But the proposed Prevention of Terrorism Act has a provision for detention without trial. Human rights activists and lawyers are raising the alarm over what they see as the return of the powers of the infamous Internal Security Act.
