JUDGMENT

A. Background

[1] The six appellants appealed against the decision of the learned Judicial Commissioner which dismissed the application by the appellants for a writ of habeas corpus. The six appellants were ordered to be detained under s 19A(1) of the Prevention of Crime Act 1959 (POCA) by the Chairman/Deputy Chairman of the Prevention of Crime Board (Board) for a period of two years. Pursuant to the order, the respective appellants are to be detained at the respective Pusat Pemulihan Khas (PPK).

B. The Issue In The Appeals

The Basis Of The Challenge

[2] Encik Najib Zakaria, counsel for the five appellants, Rovin Joty Kodeeswaran, Darweesh Raja Sulaim, Ragu Vitee, Devandren James and Velu Rajakumar indicated that he would be raising only one issue before this court, namely, whether s 15B POCA (an ouster clause provision) which purports to limit the exercise of judicial power is ultra vires art 121(1) of the Federal Constitution (FC) and therefore unconstitutional.
