If you’ve read any of our articles on police roadblocks, arrest, checking – anything related to the interaction between the public and the PDRM, really – you would have come across the term “Red Book”. 

The Red Book is essentially a cheat sheet containing all your basic rights as a Malaysian citizen, when interacting with the boys in blue. It was created by a lawyers group known as TANGKAP (Tindakan Anti Penyalahgunaan Kuasa Polis) and most commonly available as a download link from The Malaysian Bar’s website. As in the lawyers association, not the place to get a stiff drink. 

We’ve had several readers inform us that the link no longer works, so we’ve uploaded our copy which you can download… at least until it’s back up on the Malaysian Bar’s site.

Oh yes, and it’s free and meant to be shared as widely as possible.

Download the Red Book here (hosted on Google Drive)
