Top 5 At 5: 'No Report, No Probe' Reconsidered

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. A deadly 7.2-magnitude earthquake hits Taiwan, making it the country's most devastating natural disaster in 25 years.

2. It's that time of the year for Raya ads that pull at our heartstrings. This year, RHB Bank delivers with a short film telling the real-life story of lawyer, Ahmad Zaharil Muhaiyar who defended a woman accused of stealing a pencil case for her son.

3. The government is launching a power separation initiative of the Attorney General and Public Prosecutor which will be phased in through empirical studies in Canada, Australia and the UK.

4. PKR celebrates the 25th anniversary of the party's formation, featuring clips from the Breakfast Grille's interview with PKR Vice-President, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad.

5. Our top story: The police's 'no report, no probe' stance comes under question.

For these stories, we heard from Erin Hale, a freelance journalist based in Taiwan; Aira Azhari, Senior Manager at IDEAS; and Dr Wong Chin Huat, Professor of Political Science at Sunway University.
