Asian human rights TV: 19th consecutive episode

February 26, 2014

In the weekly round up of human rights news the Asian Human Rights Commission [AHRC] covers this week (25 February 2014) the following topics:

  1. Pakistan’s long march meets further challenges
  2. Disguised police officers in Sri Lanka try to disrupt protest
  3. 10th anniversary of torture victim Maina Sunuwar’s death
  4. Extrajudicial killing in broad daylight in Bangladesh
  5. The ALRC makes 17 written submissions on human rights issues in Asia to the UN
  6. Pakistani social activist is murdered
  7. Voices of survivors: this week from the Philippines.

It is remarkable and promising that a small regional NGO is able to keep this up, paving the way for further such developments in the future. See also my end-of-year post:
