Malaysia urged to repeal Sedition Act, not implement registration of Internet users

CIJ views with incredulity the suggestion by a government minister for all social media users to register with the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). Aside from such registration creating huge bureaucratic, administrative and technological challenges, it will also constitute an infringement of free expression.

Malaysia | Free Expression & the Law

Concern over harsh fine, criminal punishment of Malaysian man accused of insulting police

CIJ certainly does not condone Malaysian police officers being labelled with derogatory terms. Nevertheless, not all name-calling, or insults, should result in criminal punishment. To do so would seriously threaten freedom of expression as all manner of speech, including comments that are legitimate and necessary for democracy and accountability, would be stifled.
