Cartoonist Zunar, another individual whom Amnesty had been campaigning for.

KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here has granted leave for a judicial review to cartoonist Zunar (pic), who is challenging the ban on his book Sapuman: Man of Steal, by the Home Minister.

Lawyer N. Surendran told reporters later that Justice Azizah Nawawi granted leave to his client Zunar, whose real name is Zulkiflee SM Anwarul Haque, after Senior Federal Counsel Mazlifah Ayob, who acted for the respondents, did not raise any objections.
