Malaysian Senate urged to take opportunity to improve basic freedoms - The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) has called on the Malaysian Senate to take the opportunity to improve political freedoms in the country when a bill already adopted by the lower house of parliament to amend a controversial Sedition Act comes before it. The Sedition Act is aimed in part at regulating speech which could incite unrest or religious tension. IPU has welcomed the removal of a provision that makes it illegal for anyone to criticise the government or the judiciary.
