Singapore activist cum journalist Kirsten Han was awarded an Honorable Mention in the World Justice Project's Anthony Lewis Prize for her exemplary reporting on law issues. The WJP is an independent organisation that recognises people who transform the world through journalism, defends against injustices and supports the need for an accountable government.
Han was among six journalists who were named for their outstanding reporting.
