Questions raised on legality of documents signed by ‘Muhyiddin’ after court decision https://t.co/GXpFNv1mA1— TheVibes.com (@thevibesnews) April 2, 2021
1. The Shah Alam High Court has quashed a detention order signed by then home minister Muhyiddin Yassin last year.— BFM News (@NewsBFM) April 2, 2021
Lawyer Danial Amir says this is because the PM signed the order under his "glamour name" 'Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin', rather than his IC name 'Mahiaddin bin Md Yasin'. pic.twitter.com/u3qZ6sSgV8
3. Danial also says today's ruling has potentially opened the floodgates for other similar habeas corpus applications.— BFM News (@NewsBFM) April 2, 2021
He adds that there are several other detainees under detention orders signed by Muhyiddin at the time.

A Shah Alam court judge today squashed a detention order signed by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin (acting as Home Minister) on 9 March 2020.— Hadi in Kuala Lumpur (@amerhadiazmi) April 2, 2021
Judge ruled that it was not valid as Muhyiddin did not sign the order under his legal name ‘Mahiaddin bin Md Yasin’.
