Detailed Contents Of Government Proceedings Act 1956 (Act 359) :

The Government Proceedings Act 1956 (Act 359) and the Judicial Proceedings (Regulation of Report) Act (Act 114) are two separate pieces of legislation in Malaysia that govern the reporting of government and judicial proceedings in the media.

The Government Proceedings Act 1956 (Act 359) was introduced to regulate the way in which the government and its proceedings are reported in the media. The Act places restrictions on the reporting of government proceedings, and prohibits the publication of certain types of information.

Under the Government Proceedings Act 1956, it is an offense to publish any information that is deemed to be prejudicial to national security, public safety, or public order. This includes information that may reveal the identity of a government informant or the identity of a person involved in a confidential government operation. The Act also prohibits the publication of any information that may prejudice a pending legal proceeding or trial.

The Judicial Proceedings (Regulation of Report) Act (Act 114) is a separate piece of legislation that regulates the reporting of judicial proceedings in the media. The Act governs the way in which court proceedings can be reported in the media, and places restrictions on the type of information that can be published.

Under the Judicial Proceedings (Regulation of Report) Act, it is an offense to publish any information that may prejudice a pending legal proceeding or trial. This includes information that may reveal the identity of a witness or the identity of a person involved in a confidential legal proceeding.

In summary, both the Government Proceedings Act 1956 and the Judicial Proceedings (Regulation of Report) Act are designed to regulate the reporting of government and judicial proceedings in the media in Malaysia. Both Acts prohibit the publication of certain types of information that may be prejudicial to national security, public safety, public order, pending legal proceedings, or the outcome of a legal proceeding.
