Lena Hendry convicted of airing uncensored documentary

Published:  |  Modified:

Activist Lena Hendry was today found guilty of airing a documentary on the Sri Lankan civil war - No Fire Zone - which had not been approved by the Malaysian Censorship Board.

Magistrate Mohd Rehan Mohd Aris said the defence had failed to raise reasonable doubt in the case against Hendry, a programme manager at NGO Pusat Komas.

He, however, set March 22 to deliver the sentence and requested for the defence lawyers to submit their written submission by March 1.
