Child Bill 2015 - Of International Standard?
Dr. Waitchalla R. R. V. Suppiah

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.
