Time to ratify human rights treaties, says M’sian Bar


PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian government, which was recently elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for the 2022-2024 term, should commit to acceding to more international human rights treaties, says the Malaysian Bar.

Its president AG Kalidas said so far, Malaysia had only ratified three treaties: the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
