Claudia reported without fear or favour
TRIBUTE As a spectator watching the gun control debate in the US, I never imagined that the issues that it raises would one day hit so close to home.
For on the same day that US President Barack Obama released a photo of himself shooting a shotgun, a friend and a former colleague, journalist Claudia Theophilus, was killed by a similar weapon thousands of miles away on the mountains outside of Beirut.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
