Group starts campaign to pressure gov't to free Lena Hendry
Human rights group Pusat Komas has kicked off a campaign to pressure the government to free unconditionally, activist Lena Hendry, who was convicted of airing a documentary on Sri Lankan civil without approval.
The campaign, dubbed #defendlena, will run until March 22, the day the Magistrate's court is due to deliver a sentence against Lena under Section 6(1)(b) of the Film Censorship Act 2002.
"We want more people to be aware of the case and pressure the government to drop or overturn the case," said Pusat Komas director Anna Har.
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.
