I was asked by a lady friend of mine whose child was just released from prison and had suffered some brutal injuries due to the works done in the prison, i.e cutting woods using machine. The works were done under instruction by a police officer and every prisoner was afraid of him as he is a three stars ranking police officer. However, according to the lady's child, the instruction was given without any letter and notice commanding the prisoner to perform the task (cutting woods). The lady's child suffered injuries on his hands and legs due to performing of the task given and now they want to know whether they can file a claim against the police and under what circumstances?

Under the law, prisoners cannot be forced to do work.

You can sue the
a. Officer
b. Director of Prison
c. Government of Malaysia
for compensation.

Please remember that lawsuits against government must be filed within 3 years from the date the injuries happened. 

Find a good lawyer that has experience suing the Government. Do not use any normal lawyer. Which state in Malaysia are you in?
