AIBD collaborated with IPPTAR Malaysia to host an investigative journalism workshop. The workshop drew twenty participants from various Malaysian states. Mr Shafiq Ahmad, Editor, Asia Pacific Desk, Anadolu Agency, Turkiye, was engaged by AIBD to deliver his presentation on the subject.
Mr Shafiq discussed the elements of an investigative report as well as the essential characteristics of an investigative journalist. He shared several case studies from his career as an investigative journalist that were life-threatening and how he dealt with them while adhering to his journalistic ethics.
The workshop participants liked the workshop content and asked AIBD to collaborate on this topic again in the near future.
