KUALA LUMPUR, Sun: Participants at a Bar Council seminar on human rights yesterday chaired by Jerald Gomez asked the government to review and ultimately repeal the laws which allow arrest and detention without trial and restrict the residence and movements of persons.

The argument was that such laws are contrary to the rule of law, violate human rights, had been used to repress political opposition and go against established religious, cultural and social values and norms.
