#LawanIntimidasi: Why We Need To Protect Whistleblowers

Activist Heidy Quah was charged today for her Facebook post that was made last year, which highlighted conditions at immigration centres. Many netizens have since criticised the charge on the basis that it silences activists. We first look into the details of the case with Amnesty Malaysia. Then, we discuss the culture of whistleblowing in Malaysia. Finally, we look into laws on the protection of whistleblowers.
