The Malaysian Criminal Justice System: History Context and Development
- 5 Downloads
This section provides an overview of the early pre-colonial political history of the nation leading to independence and the creation of the Federation of Malaysia. A core aspect of this section engages with the development of the Islamic legal system in the region and the challenges presented by legal pluralism, Islamisation and departures from classical Islamic jurisprudence. The ethno-national nature of the country coupled with a tendency towards authoritarianism, or Hobbism, is explored before providing an overview of the key features of the Malaysian criminal justice institutions such as the Royal Malaysian Police and prisons.
