Abstract

The recent cases on the Official Secrets Act have, to a certain extent, clarified and limited the scope of criminal liability under section 5 of the Act. This article examines the local decisions and contrasts them with Malaysian and English developments on the subject. Some suggestions for further improvement in this area of the law are made.
