On this episode of Law & Behold, we look at issues linked to our Federal Constitution that have been making the headlines. First, we touch on free speech, while discussing YB Xavier Jayakumar being investigated under the Sedition Act & s 233(1) CMA. Next, we look at the role of the Attorney General of Malaysia, whose responsibilities are provided for in Article 145 of the Federal Constitution. Finally, we discuss the importance of parliamentary oversight as envisioned in the Constitution, with regard to the recent stimulus packages announced.
