Preacher Wan Ji Starts Jail Sentence For Sedition

The Court of Appeal has upheld the nine-month prison sentence of independent preacher Ustaz Wan Ji Wan Hussin. This comes after being found guilty in 2018 for a Facebook post he made in 2012, where he was alleged to have insulted the Sultan of Selangor. Wan Ji was charged under the Sedition Act 1948. We speak to N. Surendran from Lawyers of Liberty to get an understanding of this conviction, and why they've continued to push for this act to be repealed.
