Anti-trafficking of Persons! Anti-trafficking of National Assets!
Tuan Yang Di-Pertua,
Saya bangun untuk membahas “Rang Undang-Undang untuk meminda Akta Antipemerdagangan Orang 2007 (Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act 2007),” dengan mengalu-alukan cadangan pindaan.
Tetapi Kerajaan perlu merujuk kepada Laporan “UN High Commissioner for High Commissioner for Human Rights to Economic & Social Council” bertarikh 20 Mei 2002. Iaitu:
The Primacy of Human Rights:
“1. The human rights of trafficked persons shall be at the centre of all efforts to prevent and combat trafficking and to protect, assist and provide redress to victims.
2. States have a responsibility under international law to act with due diligence to prevent trafficking, to investigate and prosecute traffickers and to assist and protect trafficked persons.
3. Anti-trafficking measures shall not adversely affect the human rights and dignity of persons, in particular the rights of those who have been trafficked, and of migrants, internally displaced persons, refugees and asylum-seekers.”
