A bleak Human Rights Day for Malaysia, again
- by Eric Paulsen

Eric Paulsen is a co-founder of Lawyers for Liberty (LFL), a Malaysian human rights organisation that seeks to challenge unconstitutional and arbitrary decisions and acts perpetrated by the Malaysian government, its agencies and other public authorities. In order to achieve legal reform, it employs public campaigning, strategic litigation, lobbying, policy research and analysis, and human rights education.

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.
