Zulkiflee Anwar Alhaque, the famous Malaysian cartoonist better known as Zunar, is again facing the possibility of prosecution over a cartoon criticizing a politician. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the police to ignore the latest complaint against Zunar and calls on the autorities to stop using Malaysia’s sedition law to silence those who criticize the authorities.

Zunar is facing a possible three-year jail term as a result of complaint brought against him on 25 January by an ally of the prime minister of the northwestern state of Kedah.
