Law & Behold #36: Activists arrested; UNDI 18; Tamat Darurat

Law & Behold returns - now as a monthly segment - still with the aim of improving constitutional literacy among Malaysians, done in collaboration with The Malaysian Bar and the University of Malaya's Faculty of Law. This month, Firdaus Husni, the Chief Human Rights Strategist at the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR) joins us to discuss issues that dominated the news in April 2021, including Undi18 taking legal action against the government, a suit filed by the Malaysian Bar,  the Tamat Darurat Committee appealing to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to end the state of emergency before the 1st of August, and finally, the recent arrest of activists, and how this relates to freedom of expression in Malaysia
