"This book is a timely and useful addition to the literature on evidence. The insights provided are instructive and will save the readers from spending a lot of time on laborious research."
From the Foreword by
YAA Tan Sri Tengku Maimun binti Tuan Mat
Chief Justice of Malaysia
Every legal matter is built on the foundation of evidence. Every lawyer's toolkit is enhanced by knowledge of the laws of evidence. This book provides section-by-section commentary on the Malaysian Evidence Act 1950 in a straightforward, thorough, and analytical manner. The concepts of law developed over time in both domestic and international cases are meticulously distilled and summarised for the benefit of readers. The importance of Indian court rulings in better understanding evidence law has been carefully researched and explored.
The provisions of the Evidence Act are completely up to date, and helpful cross-references enable readers navigate the complexities of Malaysian evidence law. The commentary is written in an easy-to-understand format and includes key court decisions interpreting and applying the Act.
This book fills a critical gap in the literature by providing a contemporary and complete commentary on the Malaysian evidence laws. It is essential reading for lawyers, judges, court officers, legal advisers, lecturers, and students.
