The Appeals Court of Malaysia today dismissed my appeal against the High Court decision last year which ruled that the police have a right to arrest and detain me under the Sedition Act for publishing my comic book "Cartoon-O-Phobia". The Appeals Court also upheld the lower court's ruling that the confiscation of 66 copies of the book in September 2010 was illegal and ordered the police to return the books and compensate me for them. To me, today's judgement, as the one before, is unacceptable and comical. How could the judges rule that my detention was legal but the confiscation of my book was illegal?Read Zunar's full statement here.
