Azalina: Sexual harassment law has been ‘paused’ pending review

KUALA LUMPUR: Efforts to pass the long-awaited Sexual Harassment Bill on the last day of the current Dewan Rakyat meeting today will not come to pass as it has been deferred to a later date, says Pengerang MP Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said.

This comes after a high-level meeting between Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Harun and Parliament’s bipartisan special select committee on women, children affairs and social development, including representatives from the Joint Action Group for Gender Equality (JAG) and the Attorney General’s Chambers.
