“How can I be neutral? Even my pen has a stand!” It’s a favourite saying of Malaysian political cartoonist Zunar, but his pointed criticisms of the government have now landed him nine charges of sedition.

Zunar is facing a possible 43-year prison sentence for his tweets criticizing the country’s judiciary.

Zunar, who’s real name is Zulkiflee Anwar Alhaque, says the charges stem from nine tweets he posted denouncing the imprisonment of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim for what he calls “so-called sodomy.”
