Abstract

The issue of child pornography has been a highlight with the exploitation of child in Malaysia. The purpose for conducting this research is to look at whether there
is a necessity in creating a specific new law regarding the issue of child pornography since there is no specific law related to this matter contrasting the other countries such
as the United States and United Kingdom. There is no specific law in Malaysia on child pornography and no definition of child pornography. Besides that, there is also
no uniformity of the punishment and offence against child pornography provided in the present laws. Therefore, the researcher is recommended the definition of child
pornography to be inserted to the Statutes. Furthermore, this research also proposes to implement sufficient sanctions such as whipping for serious offences and to
standardize the imprisonment period. In order to produce this research, various sources will be referred to. These
sources include legal materials such as Statutes and case law. Interviews have also been conducted with the representative from the non-governmental organization and the other two from the enforcement officers. It is hoped that the research will enlightened the importance of the protection of child pornography.
