Remembering Said Zahari
Said Zahari was Utusan Melayu's former chief editor who protested against UMNO's takeover of the national newspaper in 1961. A celebrated activist, long-time political prisoner and poet - he is one of the country's notable icons for press freedom. In light of his passing this week, we will look back at the context of his time as well as revisiting an interview we did with him in 2014.
