MALAYSIANS KINI When the international environmental NGO Greenpeace interviewed him for a job, Heng Kiah Chun's interviewer warned the young man that the job might involve attending protests that could lead to his arrest.

Heng said that was not a problem for him.

"It's all okay for me because I've gone through all that," he said matter-of-factly in an interview with Malaysiakini .
