Malaysia: Politically Motivated Prosecutions Against Human Rights Defenders Must Stop

The latest instance is the trial, conviction and sentencing of Lena Hendry, a Malaysian woman human rights defender who was found guilty under the Film Censorship Act and fined RM 10,000 ($USD 2,260) by the Kuala Lumpur Magistrates Court on 22 March 2017 for screening a film on alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Sri Lanka.
