13 days ago
PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Court has set Dec 8 to hear a government application to restore a ban on a comic book by “Superman” Hew Kuan Yew about China’s belt and road initiative.
The date was decided following a case management before deputy registrar Noor Fadzlin Abd Zawawi, according to lawyer Vince Tan, who represented Hew, a former DAP activist popularly known as “Superman Hew”.
Tan said the government had asked the Federal Court to determine four questions of law regarding the case.
One question was whether the home minister’s finding – that disharmony and racial tensions being caused by publication of the book – could be used as a yardstick to measure whether Hew’s book was detrimental to public order.
