Hence this book is an attempt to provide information to the public on how such access would be available and the requirements that need to be adhered to by those in authority. As readers browse through the content, they would be able to relate to their own experience and apply it to their future endeavours.

It is imperative that no one should be denied justice as it is one of the integral aspects of human life. It extends beyond religion, races and countries as everyone is treated the same under law. Since time immemorial, regardless of beliefs and culture, justice is seen as the ultimate element in deciding whether a person deserves to be treated in the same manner like any other human beings. Hence the historical records of people fighting for their rights when they deemed that they had been oppressed, and such struggle were perceived only by them as a fight for their rights but also by those who witnessed it. As history often repeats itself, up to this moment there are various forms of demands for justice to be served to those who need it. And it has to be noted that justice in its practical form is not only limited to court proceedings, yet it extends to administrative decisions of those people in authority. Access to justice is of significant importance for any aggrieved person as it forms an essential component of the system of human rights protection and enforcement.

As the concept of justice is universal, it goes beyond the courtrooms. Hence the principles of Rule of Law and Natural Justice are embedded in any process involving an aggrieved person, be it natural or corporate. And most importantly, there shall be no hindrance to the principles, otherwise it will be treated as a bar to the access to justice. As stated by Raja Azlan FJ in Ketua Pengarah Kastam v Ho Kwan Seng (1977) 2 MLJ 154, the principle of natural justice which asserts that no one can be punished without being heard should be adopted in every case involving an individual who is disturbed by an administrative action, whether the action is labeled as judicial, quasi-judicial or administrative or whether the statute granting the power provides about hearing/hearing or not. It is also pertinent to state that access to justice is not only about providing such access, but the reasonable time in providing such. Hence justice delayed is justice denied. In the foregoing chapters, readers will be able to see how access to justice is significant in all aspects of activities be it procedural or substantive.
