Singapore is hosting the 41st ASEAN Ministerial Meeting (AMM), the Post Ministerial Conferences (PMC) and the 15th ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) in Singapore from 17 July – 24 July 2008.
Of specific concern to MARUAH is the anticipated announcement of the members of the High Level Panel on the Establishment of the ASEAN Human Rights Body (HLP). The HLP will be tasked with drafting the Terms of Reference (TOR) of the proposed ASEAN Human Rights Body.
The programme schedule also includes a meeting with the Working Group for ASEAN Human Rights Mechanism (Working Group).
MARUAH has been working closely with the Working Group on this issue. Ms Braema Mathiaparanam, co-ordinator of MARUAH and the Singapore focal point of the Working Group, is expected to be part of that meeting.
