Sedition Act

Repeal the Sedition Act in Malaysia

Freedom of expression is under attack in Malaysia. In recent years, civil society activists, academics, political opponents and others speaking out against the government have been charged under the Sedition Act and other repressive laws used to stifle dissent.

This petition highlights two individuals who have been targeted by the government and calls on the relevant authorities to drop these charges and others like them.

Call on the Attorney General Mohamed Apandi Ali and Prime Minister Najib Razak to immediately and unconditionally drop all charges against N. Surendran and Khalid Ismath and others facing trial for peacefully exercising their right to freedom of expression in Malaysia.
