Lingam clip inquiry: CIJ regrets threat of contempt towards critics

The Centre for Independent Journalism is concerned that the Royal
Commission of Inquiry into the Lingam video clip (Commission of Inquiry
on the Video Clip Recording of Images of a Person Purported to be an
Advocate and Solicitor Speaking on the Telephone on Matters Regarding
the Appointment of Judges) is taking a narrow view of ‘contempt of
court’, in a way which potentially violates freedom of expression, as
guaranteed under Article 10 of the Malaysian Constitution.

CIJ expresses its disappointment with the Royal Commission’s view on
two articles – a press statement issued by Aliran and an article
written by Anwar Ibrahim – as contempt of the Commission.
