KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 16 — A senior official from the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry (Kettha) was arrested for allegedly recruiting Malaysians and receiving funds for doing so, police chief Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said today.
The Malaysian government has increasingly employed the Sedition Act, a British colonial era law, to intimidate and silence political opponents. The law criminalizes speech uttered “to excite disaffection” against the government and defines sedition so broadly that it is an invitation to authoritarian abuse.
