Internal Security Act (Malaysia)


The Internal Security Act 1960 (ISA) is a preventive detention law in force in Malaysia. Preventive detention was inherited by Malaysia as part of the colonial baggage that the British left behind. Malaysia is one of the few countries in the world whose Constitution allows for preventive detention during peacetime without safeguards that elsewhere are understood to be basic requirements for protecting fundamental human rights.

Article 149 of the Malaysian Constitution under which a person may be detained is characterised by subjective language. Such terms as ?substantial body?, ?substantial number?, ?cause to fear?, ?excite disaffection?, ?promote feelings of ill-will and hostility?, all embody wide areas of discretionary interpretation. Preventive detention first became a feature of the then Malaya in 1948 primarily to combat the armed insurgency of the Malaysian Communist Party.
