Locked down: Screws tighten on press freedom in Malaysia

The National Union of Journalists Peninsular Malaysia (NUJM) and the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), with the support of the European Union, released – Locked down: Screws Tighten on Press Freedom in Malaysia – on May 5. It calls for a heightened governmental focus on press freedom in Malaysia.

The report, entitled Locked down: Screws Tighten on Press Freedom in Malaysia, reviews a number of issues regarding the situation of journalists and media workers in the country during their routine work. Both the NUJM and IFJ hope this report will capture the government’s attention on the challenges of domestic news media workers over the past year caused by government imposed restrictions and the continuing impacts of Covid-19.
