Myanmar Activist Abducted In Malaysia

Myanmar refugee activist Thuzar Maung and her family were abducted in Malaysia in what is suspected to be a planned operation aimed at silencing her. The Human Rights Watch expressed their concerns, and have called on the Malaysian government to prioritise a thorough and transparent investigation. We talk about why it is vital for these cases of transnational repression to be highlighted and for action to be taken.
