Proham calls on AG to withdraw the Sedition charges on Human Rights lawyer Eri Paulsen

Human Rights Lawyer Mr Eric Paulsen
Proham calls on the Attorney General of Malaysia to consider withdrawing the sedition charge against Eric Paulsen.

Eric Paulsen's criticism of JAKIM, a public body, cannot be equated to criticizing a religion. Eric Paulsen is not anti-Islam as his work with the marginalised Rohingya Muslims is well documented.
So instead of charging Eric Paulsen, JAKIM should prove their critics wrong and this can easily be done.

Proham is also disturbed with the recent increase in numbers of those charged under the Sedition Act and steady decline in human rights compliance.

Proham calls on the Prime Minister to reconsider his decision not to repeal the Sedition Act especially in a time when democratic and human right values must be in the forefront of our domestic and international policy and practice.
