The Malaysian Human Rights Commission (Suhakam) has slammed the authorities for overreacting over the 17-year-old schoolboy who 'liked' a pro-Israel Facebook page.
“Suhakam is of the view that the reported sedition probe into the student is an overreaction on the part of the police,” said chairperson Hasmy Agam in a statement today.
“It is unfortunate to note that the teachers concerned had failed to handle the matter responsibly as educators and instead created a situation that has violated the basic rights of the student, contrary to the spirit and articles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which Malaysia is a state party,” he added.
