Maria Chin obtains leave to challenge travel ban
The Kuala Lumpur High Court today granted leave (permission) to Bersih chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah to challenge the overseas travel ban imposed on her.
Justice Nik Hasmat Nik Mohamed ruled that Maria had passed the low threshold for the judicial review to be heard on its merits.
"The court finds that this is not a vexatious and frivolous application and it will be interesting to hear the case," she said in her oral decision.
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 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.
