Malaysia - A Drug Transit Hub No Longer?

When R.AGE released their documentary on drug syndicates operating in Malaysia, it shone a light on the shockingly high numbers of Malaysian drug mules languishing in Hong Kong's prison system. On today's Pressing Matters, we speak to two journalists from the R.AGE Team, about how they got wind of the story, their experience dealing with victim's families, as well as the challenges they faced in the course of the investigation.
