PETALING JAYA: Amnesty International and Article 19, a British-based non-governmental organisation, have called on the Government to drop its charges against Tenaganita director Irene Fernandez for publishing an article which contravenes the Printing Presses and Publication Act. 

Fernandez, 54, has been charged under Section 8A(2) of the Act for publishing a memorandum entitled “Abused, Torture, and Dehumanised Treatment of Migrant Workers in Detention Camps” at Tenaganita's premises on Aug 25, 1995. Her trial continues on Tuesday.
