Sedition Act

Sedition Act severely limits the ability of individuals to criticise the state, which is crucial to maintaining freedom. Sedition law originated in England in the early 17th century, Originally intention was irrelevant, but in the UK and many countries, the law evolved until today the intention to provoke violence aimed at overthrowing the government by force must be proven before conviction. This resulted in the Sedition Act falling into disuse. In Malaysia intention is still not acceptable as a defence.
