The Fairly Current Show | Azmi Sharom

As we enter the month of August and approach Merdeka, we speak with Dr. Azmi Sharom about the freedoms we are still lacking in Malaysia. The outspoken law lecturer comments on the Selangor government’s proposed Freedom Of Information Bill, recently tabled at the State Assembly, as well as the culture of fear and academic cowardice that has engulfed our public universities for too long.

Dr. Azmi Sharom is an Associate Professor in the Law Faculty of Universiti Malaya, and writes the popular Brave New World column in The Star. He wants everyone to know that he loves Tottenham Hotspur.
