OSA - A Block to Journalism?

The Attorney General’s recent proposal to amend the Official Secrets Act 1972, to include tougher penalties for journalists, has got the media talking. In this week’s episode, we explore the repercussions of the proposed amendment. How will this impede on the work of journalists in their pursuit of the truth? Will journalists who work with whistle-blowers be punished for carrying out their duty to inform the public?

Here are the segments of the episode:

1:39 - Asia Calling 1 - Myanmar's struggle with peace continues

8:38 - Asia Calling 2 - Philippines' "Donald Trump" appears in presidential election

16:35 - OSA - A Block to Journalism?

This episode was produced by Sharyl Kaur, Aisyah Tajuddin, Aziff Azuddin, and Muhammad Haniff Baharudin.
