About the book
The standards enshrined in the law of contempt are designed to uphold and guarantee that justice is administered effectively. They defend the administration of justice's integrity by ensuring that those who seek justice and those who engage in the administration of justice are sufficiently protected.

Because no particular legislation on contempt of court has been adopted in Malaysia to yet, the law regulating this issue is essentially common law. For practitioners, scholars, and judicial officials alike, this book serves as an important and up-to-date source of reference on committal processes. It is the result of significant research into local and UK case law, as well as rulings from other Commonwealth countries such as Singapore and Hong Kong, and covers both civil and criminal contempt. There includes a helpful discussion on freedom of expression and its influence on contempt of court, as well as a summary of contempt reform and progress in numerous Commonwealth countries.

Due to the procedural nature of committal processes, a long chapter discusses the law, procedure, and pertinent factors in committals. The principles of sentencing, mitigation, and the types of sentences that can be imposed for contempt are all thoroughly examined, as are appeals against court decisions. This book's comprehensive legal analysis is supplemented with a useful collection of forms and precedents pertinent to the conduct of committal processes.
