Jannie Lasimbang

HRD, Chairperson

Jannie Lasimbang is the chairperson of Bersih in the northern state of Sabah, which is a coalition of non-government organisations seeking to reform the current electoral system in Malaysia.

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.
