Arab Today, arab today Malaysian cartoonist held for sedition over Anwar tweets

Anwar Ibrahim
Kuala Lumpur - MENA

Malaysian police have arrested a cartoonist for sedition after he condemned the judiciary for imprisoning opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, the BBC reported Wednesday.
Anwar began a fire-year sentence on Tuesday for sodomizing a former male aide in 2008.
Cartoonist Zulkiflee Anwar Haque posted a series of tweets after the verdict accusing Prime Minister Najib Razak of influencing the judiciary.
Rights groups have said sedition laws are being used to suppress dissent.
Zulkiflee, 52, also known as Zunar, was arrested at his home late on Tuesday after he posted a cartoon on Twitter showing Najib as the judge in Anwar's case.
Human Rights Watch said Mr Najib's government was "turning peaceful criticism into a criminal act that threatens the state," in a statement criticizing the arrest of Zulkiflee.
