BOCs in limbo: Rights 2 UK 0

Malaysia and the UK continue to collectively drag their feet on the statelessness of British Overseas Citizens (BOCs). With no clear end in sight, only human rights stand between the uncompassionate acts of the executive and the state of being alive with certainty. And probably, protests.

Never trust the powerful.

Human rights defeated the most powerful military in the world and will continue – if applied appropriately as was done in two BOC cases on 26 September 2011 and 28 September 2012 (names and details of litigants blanked out) – to give humane protection to the weak. The determinations show how rights arguments are being employed to shelter those in limbo from executive abuse of power.

In Malaysia, and following several reports about BOCs, opinion is divided on the issue.

Will the respective governments kindly settle the issue expeditiously?
