Time to move from punitive to restorative justice system - minister
'"The law reform process must always consider all quarters including NGOs and minorities to ensure that they are inclusive, holistic and effective. "Furthermore, leaders must consider global trends and perhaps it is time for the punitive nature of the justice system in Malaysia to shift towards a restorative one in the interest of social harmony," he said in a statement after the gathering. Recollecting Mahathir's advice, Liew said the government must ensure that proposed new laws must be to address real problems and backed by comprehensive data.'
Liew Vui Keong says there are many archaic laws that are no longer relevant and need to be reviewed.
