Product description

Over a period of fifty-five years, Dr Bashir Mallal's progressive editions of Mallal's Criminal Procedure have established an enviable and respected tradition. This Seventh Edition continues Dr Mallal's aims of providing the legal profession with an authoritative and practical guide to the criminal procedure and practice of both the Superior and Subordinate Courts in Malaysia.

While the work does not claim to be an exhaustive reference on the subject, it is certainly hoped that reference to it may serve to simplify the arduous task of research into its vast area of law, and make transparent the often complex process of the administration of criminal justice and procedure in Malaysia.

Mallal's Criminal Procedure contains detailed annotations to all the sections of the Criminal Procedure Code. These annotations, supported by relevant authorities, explain and analyse important aspects of criminal procedure as well as provide useful information such as the history of each section and similarities, if any, to the Indian Criminal Procedure Code 1973 and the Singapore Criminal Procedure Code 2010. They facilitate a better understanding of criminal procedure and serve as sign posts for further research.

The annotations to each section have been organised according to the following:

(1)Scope (or synopsis) of section; (2)Cross-references to statutes, encyclopedias and textbooks; (3)Amendments; and (3)Annotations Other important contents of this edition include the Comparative Table and the full updated text of the Evidence Act 1950 and the Penal Code.

Mallal's Criminal Procedure, Seventh Edition now comes with a supplementary copy incorporating the latest statutory amendments which have come into force since the main book was published. It contains only the sections affected by the amendments with instructions as to where to insert or replace the relevant sections

The affected sections referred to in this supplement include amendments from the following legislation: -Criminal Procedure Code (Amendment) Act 2010 (Act A1378) -Criminal Procedure Code (Amendment) Act 2010 (Amendment) Act 2012 (Act 1422) - Criminal Procedure Code (Amendment) Act 2012 (Act A1423) - Criminal Procedure Code (Amendment)(No2 Act 2012 (Act1431) - Evidence (Amendment) Act 2012 (Act A1424) - Evidence (Amendment)(No2) Act 2012 (Act A1432) - Penal Code (Amendment) Act 2012 (Act A1430) - Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 (Act 736)

This makes the publication the most current reference material on the Criminal Procedure Code in the market.

Foreword by Tan Sri Edgar Joseph Jr, Former Judge of the Federal Court of Malaysia

""Need I say that it is for me, a pleasure to warmly welcome this Seventh Edition of Mallal's Criminal Procedure. This book worthily carries on the Dr Mallal tradition. To state the obvious, it provides the reader with a model of succinct exposition, combining clarity, thoroughness, and compression. It has been written with the convenience to busy Judges, Legal Practitioners, and Prosecutors; therefore will command a wide readership. The authors deserve to be congratulated with all my heart."
