Wednesday, 27 February, 2008

On 26 February 2008, The Equal Rights Trust again urged Abdullah bin Ahmad Badawi, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, to ensure that the police does not abuse its powers to discriminate against certain civil society groups and opposition party activists. ERT has also called on the Malaysian Government to accede to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and its optional protocols and to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and thus reinforce the safeguards for the enjoyment of human rights in Malaysia.
