50-member legal team for ISA detainees (source: Malaysiakini)

In a press conference held today (13 Sept), it was announced that the Bar will hold an emergency EGM next week to discuss and condemn the use of the ISA by the government to arrest persons without trial. Such an EGM is rarely held by the Bar and is seen as a strong message against the use of the ISA.

A 50-member legal team will also be formed to extend legal aid to the ISA detainees. This team will include the Bar chairperson and representative from each state in the country.
