DAP MP decries Lena Hendry's conviction
The conviction of Pusat Komas programme coordinator Lena Hendry for her role in screening a documentary on the Sri Lankan civil war is uncalled for, said a DAP MP.
"The conviction of Lena Hendry does not make sense in today's world where atrocities in any part of the world could be instantly accessed through various media outlets or mobile phone," argued Ipoh Barat parliamentarian M Kulasegaran in a statement,
In this context, he said that censorship of reality is "foolish and incomprehensible" when the truth is practically out there for anyone with a phone.
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.
