Repeal Draconian Laws Prone To Executive Abuse

Home Minister Dato’ Seri Saifuddin Nasution informed the Dewan Negara that the Printing Presses and Publication Act is still relevant to preserve peace and security. We ask Watshlah Naidu of the Center for Independent Journalism why she disputes this assertion and how best to uphold freedom of speech without stirring up racial or religious tensions.
