Child Bill 2015 - Of International Standard?

In early April, the Malaysian Parliament passed a series of amendments to the national Child Act. The Child Bill 2015 was first tabled in Parliament last year, and incorporates a number of suggestions that will hopefully bring Malaysia in line with international standards on children’s rights. Malaysia ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1995.

This is a report by Aisyah Tajuddin and Lyn Mak.
