MALAYSIA: Human Rights Defender’s case closes


MALAYSIA: Human Rights Defender’s case closes 


On the 25th August 2011 after an exhausting, expensive and exasperating six months Charles Hector and Asahi Kosei arrived at a settlement. According to the settlement, Charles Hector will pay RM1 in costs and RM1 in damages to Asahi Kosei. A further condition that Charles Hector has to satisfy is the publication of a half-page advertisement in The Star national daily newspaper and in the Nanyang Siang Pau national daily newspaper .

We hope that this  court case acts as  a wake up call for all stakeholders, including government authorities, international agencies, diplomats ,trade unions, business corporations,  to urgently review  mechanisms to  uphold the rights of migrant workers and human rights defenders.

  Although the court case is over the situation of migrant workers still requires your vigilance and Charles Hector as a human rights defenders still requires your support. He has already incurred considerable debt during this struggle.  Now he must find a further USD7000 urgently to pay for the advertisements required by Asahi kosei within the next 21 days.
