PETALING JAYA: Human rights activist and Tenaganita director Irene Fernandez (pic) passed away at 10.58am Monday from heart failure.
“She put up a fight, but her heart gave way,” said Fernandez’s younger sister, Aegil.
Fernandez, 67, was hospitalised in the Coronary Care Unit of the Serdang Hospital last Tuesday. She was brought to the hospital after suffering breathing difficulties on her way to the Bersih People’s Tribunal on the 13th General Election.
Fernandez was known in humanitarian circles and even outside as a strong voice in promoting and protecting the rights of the less fortunate.
