Increasing trend of violence against journalists

According to Steven Gan, the chief editor and co-founder of Malaysiakini, there is an increasing trend of violence towards journalists in Malaysia.

This is evidenced by the dozens of journalists who were either beaten up, detained or had their equipment confiscated during last Saturday’s Bersih 3 Rally in Kuala Lumpur.

Gan was speaking to a congregation of journalists from various Medias and supporters who had gathered in front of the Malaysiakini headquarters this morning to commemorate the World Press Freedom Day 2012.
