To mark the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists 2021 recently, the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ), Gerakan Media Merdeka (Geramm), and Freedom Film Network (FFN) organised an online panel discussion on 2 November 2021 titled “Malaysian press in distress: How independent journalists keep the powers in check”

The online discussion was aimed at raising awareness of the instrumental role of journalists in keeping the powers in check and highlighting the state’s intimidation tactics to persecute and prosecute journalists for their work.
