Anne Keyworth, 65, a vocal social activist was abruptly stopped by organizers when touching on corruption in the midst of presenting a paper at the 2011 Workshop on Reporting on Trafficking in Persons’ here in Kota Kinabalu recently.
“Why was I asked to stop talking when I mentioned corrupt police officers in my presentation? Why was I asked to stop talking after presenting my paper for 20 minutes”, she questioned.
The two day workshop was jointly organised by the Malaysian Press Institute (MPI) and the US Embassy.
Keyworth is the founder of the Bukit Harapan home and had personally helped many victims of human trafficking particularly in Sabah.
