In a related update to my previous post, it appears that the Malaysian Foreign Minister has urged the University of Malaya to lift the speech ban of Ms Ebadi.

"We would like Dr. Ebadi to be invited to the forum," Foreign Minister Rais Yatim told the Star daily.

"Malaysia should allow the freedom of expression and criticisms at the highest level. I will go and investigate this matter," he added.
