Summary note:
"The report, "Deepening the Culture of Fear: The Criminalization of Peaceful Expression in Malaysia," documents the government's recent use of overbroad and vaguely worded laws to criminalize peaceful speech and assembly. Since Human Rights Watch's October 2015 report, "Creating a Culture of Fear," the Malaysian government has done little to bring these laws and practices in line with international legal standards. Instead, the government has suggested it will strengthen statutes limiting speech on social media and other rights-offending laws"--Publisher's description.
Notes:
  • "October 2016"--Table of contents page.
  • "This report was researched and written by Linda Lakhdhir, a legal advisor in the Asia Division of Human Rights Watch"--Acknowledgments.
