THE Health Ministry (MOH) is still waiting for feedback from the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) on the amendment to section 309 of the penal code, involving a moratorium on the prosecution and conviction of attempts to commit suicide.
Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the cabinet was of the view that the matter would have to be finalised at the AGC before the government makes a decision.
“I have raised the issue on this moratorium and the cabinet feels that before we decide, we need to get views if suicide attempts can be decriminalised,” he told reporters after officiating at a dialogue session in conjunction with the hospital directors’ conference in Petaling Jaya today.
Earlier, MOH had submitted to the cabinet a memorandum for a moratorium on the prosecution and conviction involving attempted suicides.
The memorandum is an effort to decriminalise suicide attempts and to defer or repeal sentencing of the offence under section 309 of the penal code until amendments are made.
Under the section, whoever attempts to commit suicide can be jailed up to one year, fined, or both. – Bernama, June 21, 2022.
