Human rights activist Lena Hendry, prosecution withdraw their appeals

It looks like freedom of speech or expression has not been upheld by the court today.

Lena Hendry is a Programme Coordinator for Pusat KOMAS, a human rights organisation which works to empower indigenous peoples, urban poor, workers, and civil society organisations to advocate for human rights through the use of popular media. On 19 September 2013, she was charged for organising a film screening event showing the documentary “No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka”.

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.
