Human Rights 2015 - What Progress?

From the death camps of Wang Kelian to the push-back on transgender rights, Malaysia’s human rights record took a beating in 2015. Along with these controversies, the increased use of the Sedition Act and the framing of new laws like the National Security Council Act have come in for criticism by human rights advocates. A lack of progress on issue of impunity in custodial deaths continues to mar Malaysia’s international reputation. Today we take a critical look at our record.


This is a report by Aisyah Tajuddin and Navin Nair.
