Weekly Roundup, Episode 5

The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has launched a new episode of its weekly video news bulletin, the Human Rights Asia Weekly Roundup.

The fifth episode, covers an extended report on Sexual Violence in Asia. The report looks at how widespread sexual violence is in many Asian countries and the fact that going to the police to file a complaint might make the situation worse rather than provide a path towards justice. In this special report we will report from India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

In addition, we report on another arrest of Bangladeshi human rights defender working for Odhikar. Also in this week’s report, labour strikes across Indonesia, Long March in Balochistan continues and more.

The bulletin can be watched online. The AHRC welcomes human rights news feeds to be considered for the weekly news bulletin, and suggestions to improve the news channel. For further information and comments, please write to, news@ahrc.asia
