Child Marriage: What Rights for the Child?

James Nayagam, Chairman, Suriana Welfare Society | Sharmila Sekaran, Voice of the Children | Kartina, Legal Officer, Sisters in Islam

21-May-13 15:00

Child marriage in Malaysia is more frequent and widespread than many would think. It is not specific to one race or class, and often includes children and girls below the age of 14, some even below the age of 10.

A recent case in Sabah has brought this topic to light, so to find out more, James Nayagam, Suriana Welfare, Sharmila Sekaran, Voice of the Children, and Kartina, Legal Officer at Sisters in Islam, join us in the studio for a truly explosive and thought-provoking interview.
