Malaysia: UN expert says child marriages must end General—04 Oct 18

กรุงเทพฯ--4 ต.ค.--OHCHR-Bangkok
A UN human rights expert has urged Malaysian authorities to redouble their efforts to end child marriages, and to establish a robust non-discriminatory child protection system.

The UN Special Rapporteur on the sale and sexual exploitation of children, Maud de Boer-Buquicchio, called on the Government to enter into a dialogue with religious communities and judges who continue to grant exceptions under "certain circumstances" that allow the marriage of children of any age under Sharia law.

"I recognise the complexity of the parallel legal systems in Malaysia, including the differences between laws at Federal and State level," said the expert, at the end of an eight-day visit to the country. "Child marriage practices in Malaysia are often driven by poverty, patriarchal structures, customs and misconceptions around pre-marital sex."

De Boer-Buquicchio said there were encouraging discussions nationally spearheaded by the Deputy Prime Minister to raise the minimum age of marriage for girls and boys and the momentum must be seized to put an end to this harmful practice that affects children irreparably.
