    1. INTRODUCTION

    Australia since 1788. Modern Australian history begins with the arrival of Admiral Arthur Phillip and his establishment of a penal colony in New South Wales. However discreditable that policy may have been,[1] at the time it seemed like a good idea and it resolved a pressing problem for British criminal justice.[2] Since then, however, Australia's impact on the justice system has been very different. Australia has made major contributions to both civil and criminal justice across the common law world. The jurisprudence of Sir Owen Dixon is but one example. In particular (and this is the focus of the present conference session), Australia has always been innovative in the field of civil procedure.

    My own visits to Australia in connection with civil justice reform. I have visited Australia twice in connection with civil justice reform. The first visit was in March/April 2009 during the course of the Review of Civil Litigation Costs. The second visit was in December 2011 during the course of the implementation of the reforms resulting from that review. Like many visitors, I was greatly impressed by your vibrant civil justice system and willingness to innovate. In many ways Britain now follows Australia's lead. For example, the Shorter and Flexible trials Pilot Scheme,[3] recently established in our Rolls Building jurisdictions, has echoes of a similar scheme devised by the Australian Federal Court about ten years ago.[4]

    Berhubung kes terbaharu JAMALUDIN BIN JAAFAR V. AFFIN BANK BERHAD (RAYUAN SIVIL NO.: K-02-2728-12 TAHUN 2013) di mana Mahkamah Rayuan Malaysia melalui penghakiman bertarikh 30 September 2016 telah memutuskan bahawa gadaian atas tanah rezab Melayu kepada bank dan institusi kewangan yang tidak tersenarai sebagai “Melayu” di bawah Seksyen 2 (Jadual Kedua), Enakmen Tanah Rezab Melayu (No. 63) Negeri Kedah adalah “null and void”.

    Mahkamah Rayuan dalam penghakimannya melalui Yang Arif Abdul Rahman Sebli HMR memutuskan: “The issue before His Lordship was a straightforward issue of whether any right or interest in any Malay reservation land could vest in a non-Malay. The answer to the question is self evident in section 6 itself, which we reproduce below for ease of reference:

    “6. (1)      Save as hereinafter provided in this Enactment, where any Reservation land is held under a document of title by a Malay, no right or interest therein shall vest, whether by transfer, sale in execution of a decree, sale at the instance of a chargee or otherwise, in any person who is not a Malay and where any Reservation land is held under a document of title by a Siamese no right or interest therein shall vest, whether by transfer, sale in execution of a decree, sale at the instance of a chargee or otherwise, in any person who is not either a Malay or a Siamese.”

    GLOBALISATION AND ITS EFFECTS ON HUMAN TRAFFICKING: A LEGAL PERSPECTIVE FROM ASIA*
    by
    DR MANIQUE COORAY**

    Abstract

    "Globalisation" is the "development of an increasingly integrated global economy marked especially by free trade, free flow of capital, and the tapping of cheap foreign labour markets that transcend nation-state boundaries."[1] "Human Trafficking" on the other hand, is the "illicit and clandestine movement of persons across national and international borders, largely from developing to developed countries."[2] As the results of globalisation transcends and surpasses all walks of life irrespective of culture and race, there is a high likelihood of the advantages of globalisation subjected to be misused and abused. Criminals are able to take advantage of the differences in legal provisions and the differences in various jurisdictions which allows them to organise criminal syndicates to exploit the lucrative trafficking industry. However, at the outset, it must be stated that human trafficking is not just an outcome of globalisation but is within a part of the globalisation process that involves a functional integration of dispersed economic activities.

    In view of the numerous recent cases that have been highlighted on human trafficking in Asia, the first objective of the paper is to examine the correlation between globalisation and human trafficking, and secondly, to examine the existence or the absence of the legislative measures that facilitate the transfer of commodities, mainly, women and children.

    Keywords: Human Rights; Women and Children; Trafficking; Globalisation
