Know your rights: Read the RED BOOK

What do you do when confronted by police? The Malaysian Bar has a simple 6-page RED BOOK detailing your basic rights when:

1. Police stop you
2. Police question you when stopped
3. Questioning by police without arrest
4. Police arrest you
5. Your rights after arrest & during detention
6. Remand order by magistrate after arrest
7. Body search without arrest
8. Body search upon arrest
9. Questioning by police after arrest

Download the RED BOOK. The site shows only 30,000 copies have been downloaded. That just means more people need to know what their basic rights are.
