[NEWS] Kangar Police Chief Files Report Against SUARAM Executive Director

Defamation charges have been lodged against human rights defender and SUARAM Executive Director Sevan Doraisamy for exposing alleged police torture.

Kangar police chief Wari Kiew has filed the report saying, “I lodged the report so he could be probed under Section 500 of the penal code for defamation and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act…”

Shouldn’t the authorities investigate the serious torture allegations instead?
