Abstract: The objective of this study is to explore the applicability of privileged wills to certain media people in the forefront of war, police force in peacekeeping operations and members of volunteer relief organizations giving medical and humanitarian service under the Wills Act 1959 (Act 346). For this purpose, this study employs a qualitative research methodology and uses the doctrinal and comparative approach. The question to be considered is whether the law on privileged wills in Malaysia is still important and whether all groups entitled to make privileged wills are covered by the Wills Act 1959 (Act 346). This study contends that privileged wills are to be preserved in Malaysia.
