Unfair Contract Terms in Auctions

Consumers are faced with very unfair contract terms in the Condition of Sale when they take part in auctions.

These terms are one-sided and put the bidder/purchaser in an extremely disadvantaged position at auctions.


No-fault insurance long overdue

CAP congratulates the Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail for proposing that the no-fault liability scheme be implemented.

Such a scheme is long overdue. We had as far back as the late 1970s and in the early 1990s, called for the introduction of some kind of no-fault motor insurance to benefit consumers. The idea behind no-fault insurance is to get accident victims compensated as quickly as possible.
