Malaysia needs law on refugees, asylum seekers
- Enact a law that will govern the treatment and rights of refugees and asylum seekers, or those applying for such status;
- Ratify/sign the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and other relevant conventions that will recognise and protect rights of refugees and asylum seekers in Malaysia.
- Review its obligations under existing extradition treaties and agreements, to ensure that it does not violate Malaysia’s obligations under the principle of non-refoulement.
