Gov't Urged to Legislate Antidiscrimination Law for Immigrants

A human rights council led by four major religious groups in South Korea is urging the government to enact an antidiscrimination law to protect immigrants.

The Council for Immigrants’ Human Rights held a news conference in downtown Seoul on Wednesday to call for related legislation.

They said an antidiscrimination law is the minimum legal means to uphold human rights of social minorities and the first step for all members of the society to understand the violent nature of discrimination in order to eliminate it.

The council also urged the government to actively reflect immigrants’ opinions in its basic policy for foreigners and to produce measures to ensure human rights of migrant workers and female immigrants.
