    SAFETY... YOU WILL REGRET IT IF YOU FORGET
    OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY:
    THE MALAYSIAN PERSPECTIVE


    by
    UMMA DEVI LOGANATHAN*

    1.1 Introduction

    One bad day at the grinder could ruin your whole life. It is an undeniable fact that employees are the most important assets of the business industries and their safety is a paramount consideration. In referring to the Highland Towers tragedy in 1974,[1] when the purported architect (who represented himself as a registered qualified architect) was told to stop construction works until the appropriate drainage system for the natural stream was incorporated in the proposed layout plan but failed to do so, James Foong J (as he then was) at the High Court of Malaya in Steven Phoa Cheng Loon & Ors v. Highland Properties Sdn Bhd & Ors [2000] 4 CLJ 508; [2000] 4 MLJ 200 remarked, “I have reiterated my strong sentiments against this type of attitude of professionals whose only consideration is to guard and secure their own interest rather than their duties and obligations to those closely affected and the public on which so much faith and reliance are placed on them to carry out their professional duties.

    NORMS AND ETHICS OF ISLAMIC BANKING SYSTEM:
    EXAMINING THE TRIBULATIONS OF RIBA VIS-Á-VIS TEXTUAL PROVISIONS


    by
    Abdulraheem Taofeeq Abolaji*
    AbdulGaniyu Bello**

    Abstract

    Riba or interest has been the universal phenomenon not only in transactions among individuals but also in the banking industry and this has resulted in hardship. Therefore, this article traces the ills of Riba in the Islamic context from textual authorities and explores the contemporary evidence supporting its prohibition. The research is carried out through a qualitative approach by using the doctrinal method to analyse primary and secondary sources. It attempts to examine some hardship and illness caused by Riba (interest) to individuals, the nation and the world at large. It also shows with contemporary evidence that Riba was responsible for a part of the economic crisis of some nations.

    DEFAMATION BY CONDUCT: ACTIONABLE IN LAW OR NOT? AN OVERVIEW OF THE MALAYSIAN POSITION

    by
    EDWARD KURUVILLA*

    Abstract

    Unlike claims for defamation founded on the written word (libel) or the spoken word (slander), where the law remained settled for close to a century, there has been much ambiguity and uncertainty surrounding claims for defamation founded on conduct. In Malaysia, the foremost pronouncement on this area of law was by the Court of Appeal in Proton Parts Centre Sdn Bhd v. Mohamed Zainal & Another Appeal [2010] 1 CLJ 348, which did very little to clarify the legal position.

    The decision of the Court of Appeal appears to depart from the common law legal position and - as decisions that followed have shown - this area of law remains far from resolved. Simply put, there are - at present - too many questions and too few answers. This paper: (i) examines the common law legal position leading up to the pronouncement in 2009; (ii) considers in detail the decision in Proton Parts Centre Sdn Bhd itself and its impact on subsequent cases; and (iii) proposes four questions of law for determination by the Federal Court, where it is argued, upon mature consideration thereof, would definitively settle any ambiguity or uncertainty in this elusive area of law.
