Malaysia: Detention Order Revokes As Muhyiddin Uses "Glamour Name"

The Shah Alam High Court dismissed a preventive detention order signed by Muhyiddin Yassin when he was a home minister, for the reason that he signed the order using this 'glamour name'.

Malaysia's Prime Minister, known as Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin but his government gazetted MyKad name is Mahiaddin Md Yasin. 

Lawyer Danial Amir Hamzah uses this to squash the detention order issued by his office to Sabahan Awang Sari Lasikan.

Danial said to Malaysiakini that judicial commissioner Norsharidah Awang today allowed the habeas corpus application by Sabahan Awang Sari Lasikan. Awang is now freed from detention. 

Danial also explained that today’s ruling has potentially opened the floodgates for other similar habeas corpus applications to several other detainees.

The team contended that the detention order is invalid because it was issued and signed under a name (Muhyiddin) that is not valid in law as specified by the Ministerial Functions Act and the Dangerous Drugs (Special Preventive Measures) Act.
