Navi Pillay Commissioner UN Human Rights
UN News Centre,-- 13 November 2012 – Indonesia must tackle increasing levels of
discrimination and violence as well as translate its commitments into
domestic law if the young democracy is to improve the protection of
human rights for all its citizens, a top United Nations official said
today. 


“Indonesia has a rich culture and history of diversity and tolerance. At the same time, it risks losing this if firm action is not taken to address increasing levels of violence and hatred towards religious minorities and narrow and extremist interpretations of Islam,” said the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay.

Speaking at a press conference in the capital, Jakarta, Ms. Pillay commended the South-east Asian
nation for its high rate of ratification of international human rightstreaties. It is party to eight core human rights conventions. 

At the same time, during her talks with the Government, the HighCommissioner stressed the importance of translating Indonesia’sinternational human rights obligations into domestic law.

“I have seen that this process has begun in many areas and encourage the Government to continue with this and resist any back-sliding inlegislative standards at the local or national levels,” she stated.
