Malaysia: Stop intimidation of human rights lawyer and defenders
Amnesty International is deeply concerned about the intimidation and harassment of a Malaysian human rights lawyer and the human rights defenders he is representing. Lawyer Charles Hector is at risk of contempt of court charges simply for carrying out his work as a lawyer. The organisation views the charges as an act of intimidation and harassment to silence him and his clients. Amnesty International calls on the authorities to immediately drop the contempt application, and for the government to reform contempt of court laws and ensure that lawyers are able to perform their professional duties safely without any threat, intimidation or harassment.
