Malaysia’s High Court takes over case of men charged with supporting LTTE

Malaysia’s High Court will now take over the case of six Tamil men, who have been charged with posting supportive material of the LTTE on Facebook.

The charges come with serious implications under Section 130J(1)(a) of Malaysia's Penal Code, which can lead to punishments such as a 30 years jail sentence or even a life sentence.
