Urgent Action by Amnesty International

Urging the authorities to overturn the conviction against Lena Hendry, and to drop all charges against her unconditionally
Urging the Malaysian government to drop all charges against other human rights defenders charged under repressive laws that have been used to stifle dissent by judicially harassing human rights defenders for peacefully carrying out their work
Urging the authorities to repeal or amend excessive, disproportionate and vaguely drafted laws which violate the right to freedom of expression, such as the Film Censorship Act, and bring them into line with international human rights law and standards. For more information on the Campaign see:
