Do you know your basic rights vis a vis the police?

The Bar Council has recently published a booklet (called the Red Book : Know Your Rights) which spells out an individual's rights when interacting with police. The booklet covers the most common situations of interactions between the public and the police, for example, when the police stops, questions or arrests someone. Copies of the booklet were quickly snapped up but it is available on the Malaysian Bar Website.

I would strongly recommend everyone to read it and print out a copy for your own reference as well as to distribute it to your family, relatives, colleagues and friends.
