COURT UPDATE: High Court sets September 25 for Zunar’s travel ban challenge
High Court has set 25th September to hear my challenge on travel ban.
I have to wait another three months to find out whether I will be allowed to travel abroad.
This morning, the Kuala Lumpur High Court Judge Datin Hajjah Azizah has set 25th September to hear my challenge to quash the travel ban. The Malaysian government imposed the travel ban on me since June 2016, immediately after I received “Cartoonist for Peace Award 2016” which was presented by Kofi Annan in Geneva. The challenge was filed on Dec 7 last year.
I was represented by Melissa Sasidaran.
ZULKIFLEE ANWAR HAQUE, better known as ZUNAR to Malaysians, is a cartoonist who has been drawing editorial cartoons for the past 20 years in Malaysia.
