In October 2014, both Justice Centre, as well as women from Voices for Protection, filed two shadow reports to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) before the Committee’s examination of HKSAR Government at its 59th session. Earlier, on 21 July 2014, Justice Centre also participated in a Legislative Council session dedicated to examining the Hong Kong Government’s report to CEDAW. At this LegCo Panel on Constitutional Affairs, Justice Centre spoke about their human rights concerns in our oral statement. We also filed a written submission with recommendations on how the Hong Kong Government can improve its efforts to combat human trafficking and forced labour, building on our previous report.
