Following his “Cartoon-O-Phobia London Tour” (organised by SUARAM International, Global Net, Amnesty UK, Southeast Asian Arts Festival and Index on Censorship), Zunar has returned to Malaysia to face charges of sedition.

The cartoonist hoped the tour would create awareness on the real state of affairs and the serious limitations that exist in Malaysia where freedom of expression, freedom of the media and human rights are concerned.

Now, in a surprise turn, the Malaysian cartoonist and his lawyers have applied to the country’s high court to consider whether the Sedition Act is constitutional.
