LEGAL FORUM 4U & ME SERIES 2 BY LEGAL AFFAIRS DIVISION IN COLLABORATION WITH HELP UNIVERSITY

Shah Alam, 23 November 2016  –As part of the Legal Forum 4U & Me initiative under the Legal Affairs Division, Prime Minister’s Department, the second series of Legal Forum 4U & Me with the theme “Social Media and the Community” in collaboration with the Faculty of Law and Government, HELP University was held at the HELP University Campus Subang 2 on 23 November 2016. This programme was officiated by Yang Berhormat Dato’ Razali bin Ibrahim, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department. The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has also given great support to this programme and has joined hands in promoting awareness on social media to the participants who were mainly the law students and lecturers of HELP University.

In his opening speech, Yang Berhormat Dato’ Razali bin Ibrahim highlighted that the notion of freedom of speech comes together with the element of social responsibility. He elaborated that it is a person’s right to have opinions on matters whether in approval or in disagreement. However, responsibility and accountability should not be forsaken when one is exercising freedom of expression.

To further encourage intellectual thoughts on this topic, Social Media Talk was held where Dr Jaspal Kaur from the HELP University presented on “The Legal Basin of Media Rights (and Responsibilities) for the Fifth Estate: A Consideration of Established and New Principles” followed by Mr. Zulkarnain Mohd Yasin, Chief Officer Network Security and Enforcement Sector, MCMC presented on “Revisiting Freedom of Speech in the Social Media Era”. A workshop was then conducted with the law students and lecturers of the HELP University, to discuss and generate ideas on the need and necessity to regulate social media.
