The Court of Appeal has upheld the nine-month prison sentence of independent preacher Wan Ji Wan Hussin.

This comes after he was found guilty in 2018 for a Facebook post he made in 2012, where he was alleged to have insulted the sultan of Selangor. Wan Ji was charged under the Sedition Act 1948.

BFM speaks to N Surendran from Lawyers of Liberty to get an understanding of this conviction, and why the group has continued to push for this act to be repealed.
