Dato Quek ngee meng

Human Rights Advocate

Growing up as the eldest son of Quek Jin Teck, Quek Ngee Meng has always admired the work of his father as a social activist figure in the late 1960s. It was the same love and affection towards his father that led him to become the human rights lawyer who represents the next of kin of the victims in the Batang Kali massacre. It all began when his father first arrived at Ulu Yam, a town not far from Batang Kali to enjoy his retirement. The untold stories about the massacre which happened back in December of 1948 have slowly spread to him through the words of the villagers. Determined to uphold justice, his father has shiftly formed a committee to demand justice against the perpetrators of the killings by the British government after 60 years.

After 10 years of relentlessly demanding justice through the legal system, the victim families has successfully brought the case to the European Court of Human Rights, which marked the Malaysian first overseas litigation pursuit.
