  • economic_crime_blown_out_proportion_real_threat_baharom_2015.pdf.jpg
  • Industry Article


  • Authors: Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2015-07-01)

  • There is ambiguity in defining economic crime or sometimes referred to as white collar crime or finance crime. The general notion refers to economic crimes as illegal acts in which offenders' principal motivation appears to be economic gain. However, is it possible to conclude on the offenders' motivation merely by observing the criminal act? Another school of thought claims that economic crimes are illegal acts that successfully provide offenders with an economic return or for which victims incur an economic cost.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Muneeza, Aishath (2010)

  • The purpose of this research is to formulate a legal framework to resolve the issue of elder abuse which is a malicious act prevalent in the Malaysian society, which people do not know how to recognise.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Lahsasna, Ahcene (2011)

  • Fatwa plays a very significant role in Shariah by providing different resolutions and solutions to the Muslim community when it is needed to ensure the compliance with principles of Shariah and commends of God. It should be understood that fatwa is not confined to particular section in Islamic law but it covers the entire sections and subsection of Islamic law including business, finance and trade. Today, fatwa takes a different shape in Islamic finance; it is introduced and presented in the industry in the form of resolutions issued by Shariah board members who represent Shariah corporate governance body in the structure of the Islamic financial institutions. The resolution is furthe...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Din, Badariah H.; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2016)

  • The purpose of this paper is to relate the quality of governance with crime in Malaysia. The study also identifies the best good governance tool to fight against crime in Malaysia. The study uses time-series data on crime rates and six measures of governance: voice and accountability, political stability, government effectiveness, regulatory quality, rule of law and control of corruption. In this study the authors employed the popular autoregressive distributed lagged modeling approach to estimate the long-run model of crime and governance. The authors test the hypothesis that good governance lowers crime rates (total crime, violent and property crimes). The results suggest a negative...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Wisham, Ismail; Muneeza, Aishath (2011)

  • Corruption is a cancer spoiling the society. It inhibits the developed and developing nations to rise above and turn into developed nations.

This indeed affects the development of projects and impacts the grassroots by depriving the marginalised of essential benefits. The objective of this paper is to provide a descriptive analysis on international corruption, curbing legislations existing in the world today. It is argued here that corruption needs to be curbed at all cost. This article also proposes suggestions on how this issue may be resolved. The authors contend that a single set of legislation against cor...

  • Authors: Yasini, Marifatulhaq (2017)

  • This paper aims to propose a modality for the mitigating of Shari'ah non-compliance risk that may arise from voidable contract. Despite all the positive legal developments and achievements that are provided by the Islamic Finance laws that are enacted in the recent years, the question of voidable contracts (al-aqd al-fasid) remains a lacuna in the legal framework of Islamic finance. Although, in Malaysia the Contract Act (CA) 1950 provides a number of provisions that deal with voidable contracts, it does not look at the contract from the Islamic perspective. It provisions are restricted to the conventional system ... Available in physical copy only (Call Number: t BP 158.7 Q1 Y29)<...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Muneeza, Aishath (2010)

  • Alternative dispute resolution ('ADR') is not a new concept which was introduced in the last century; but rather, it is a rejuvenation of the conservative methods of dispute resolution which was inherent in previous societies. The main objective of this paper is to prove that conventional ADR is not alien to Islamic law, but the modern ADR is in specie of the Islamic ADR.
