WP: MINLAW'S REPLY DID NOT ADDRESS TWO KEY POINTS

We refer to the Ministry of Law’s reply on 22 January 2017 to our press statement on the Protection from Harassment Act.

The Ministry of Law stated that it does not intend to amend the POHA to protect itself from harassment. We welcome this statement.

However the Ministry has not stated if it will amend the POHA or introduce new laws to protect itself from false information.

WP CAUTIONS AGAINST AMENDING POHA TO PROTECT GOVT FROM HARASSMENT

The Workers’ Party welcomes the recent decision by the Court of Appeal in Attorney-General v Ting Choon Meng that government agencies such as MINDEF do not fall under the legal definition of “persons” under Section 15 of the Protection from Harassment Act (POHA).

However, we are concerned by the Ministry of Law’s response to the ruling, which suggests that the Government is looking into taking further action on the matter.
