Latest For Zunar: Severe Obstacles To Lifting Travel Ban

The embattled Malaysian cartoonist Zunar received bad news on one of the fronts he's fighting for his personal freedom to express himself and to move freely in the world without government restriction. An unrelated case has been upheld in favor of the Malaysian government not only restricting movement but not even having to supply a reason for doing so.

Despite this reading, Zunar says he is confident that unrestricted travel is declared a fundamental right at multiple times within the constitution. He vows he will continue his legal press until all avenue are exhausted.

Zunar's hearing is currently schedule for September 25.
