10 December 2015

Since 1950, the world marks 10th December as Human Rights Day.  It is a day to create awareness to  fundamental human rights, in particular as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) as the common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.

This year, the National Human Rights Society (HAKAM),  in collaboration with The Malay Mail Online, is pleased to gift you 7 articles, daily from 10 to 16 December 2015 in celebration of Human Rights Day 2015, aimed at bringing attention to selected and specific interest areas concerning human rights in Malaysia.

Happy reading!
