The Federal Court recently held Malaysiakini in contempt of court for publishing readers’ comments that were deemed to have insulted the judiciary. BFM unpacks the judgment with lawyer Farah Shuhadah Razali and discusses the implications for the media industry with Radzi Razak of media rights coalition Gerakan Media Merdeka.

Thanks for dropping by! The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.
