INDONESIA: The Solidarity of Asian People’s Advocacy Task Force on ASEAN and Human Rights has urged Indonesia to play a significant role in the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) in promoting and protecting the rights of people within the grouping of 10 countries. “It has been more than one year since the establishment of the AICHR.

It said they have high expectation for Indonesia’s active role since the country is the Chair of ASEAN 2011. IJ12740.1635
