At the workshop Dr Denison Jayasooriya, a former Human Rights Commissioner, pointed out that, despite the legislative mandate granted to Malaysia’s National Human Rights Commission (Suhakam) to produce annual reports on the state of human rights in Malaysia, there has never been an allocation of time for formal deliberations on these, either in Parliament itself or at select committee stage. Four contemporary serious human rights issues are particularly relevant, according to Dr Denison Jayasooriya, to the people of Sabah and Sarawak, all of these being connected to the execution of policies and programmes by the Federal Government.

THE BASIC STRUCTURE OF MALAYSIAN FEDERALISM Federalism is therefore a complex system of government and it is especially so in Malaysia given its complex, multi-layered nature. Malaysia is a federation of two states (originally in 1963 three, including Singapore) with an already existing Federation of eleven states, the Federation of Malaya, which came into being in 1948. The Federation of Malaya had brought within the federal structure the nine Malay states (which were already either federated or unfederated) and the two former Crown colonies of Penang and Melaka (Malacca).
