2 members of the Malacca Bar participated in the inaugural Program Paralegal organised by the Reproductive Health Association of Melaka (formerly known as Family Planning Association Malacca) on 06/4/2010.

The morning session included a talk on the Civil and Syariah jurisdiction with specific focus on the legal issues concerning the transgender community; while in the afternoon there was a panel discussion and issues such as a person’s rights upon arrest, during detention, and upon being charged in Court were discussed.

A selection of pamphlets on various legal issues were distributed to all attendees.

The event was reported in Kosmo and Sinar Harian.

For members of the Malacca Bar who wish to lend a hand for future Legal Aid events, we welcome you.  Please leave your name with Mr. Kennies Cheong at the Bar Committee office (284 5519) or via email to mccabar@gmail.com
