PM clarifies National Security Council Act has been deliberately misinterpreted and that it is not the same as a declaration of national emergency


THE STAR

PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has said that the National Security Council Act has been deliberately misinterpreted and that it is not the same as a declaration of national emergency.

The Prime Minister said that the proclamation of national emergency remains with the King and that Parliament remains sitting with oversight on any security area declared.

“We were criticised for passing these laws, including by some who fear mongered for political reasons,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.

Najib said that the latest terrorist outrages around the world demonstrates that the threat is real and growing.



“We are far from immune in Malaysia, as the first IS attack on us last month showed,” he said adding that the introduction of new acts followed requests from security forces.

These acts include Security Offences (Special Measures) Act, the Special Measures against Terrorism in Foreign Countries Act, the Prevention of Terrorism Act, and the National Security Council Act.

The National Security Act comes into effect in August.

“My government will never apologise for placing the safety and security of the Malaysian people first. These laws were necessary, and other countries have since followed our lead.

“I can assure Malaysians that the Government will continue to put all possible measures in place to protect you,” he said adding that IS and its perverted ideology have no place in Islam.

“Now is the time for us to unite and play an even greater part alongside the world community in the fight against terrorism,” he added.
