Adam Adli Abdul Halim


Adam Adli Abdul Halim campaigns for the protection of student rights and academic freedom. He was sentenced to a year in jail on 19 September 2014 on charges of sedition in relation to a speech he made at a post-election forum, where he urged people to take to the street to protest the widely contested election results. He appealed the conviction and is currently out on bail.

Human rights defenders in Malaysia face judicial harassment, arbitrary arrest, threats, intimidation and smear campaigns. HRDs active against corruption, calling for electoral reform and free and fair election are particularly vulnerable.
