Statement by the Delegation of Thailand

Ms. Chalongkwan Tavarayuth, First Secretary

at the Review of the Czech Republic

during the 28th Session of the Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review

on Monday 6 November 2017 from 09.00 to 12.30 hrs.

 

Mr. President,

Thailand appreciates the Czech Republic’s comprehensive national report presentation.

Noting the Czech Government’s continuing efforts to combat hate crimes and all forms of discrimination against minorities, we remain concerned with the prevalence of such crimes resulting from racial and xenophobic motives. We, therefore, recommend the Czech Government to take further measures to tackle hate crimes and racial discrimination, including by promoting an understanding of cultural diversity in society, assisting minority youth to access the labour market and adopting adequate social housing policies.

We are also concerned with the problem of violence against women and children, in particular domestic and sexual violence which has been largely underreported.
We recommend the Czech Government to take measures to effectively prevent and prosecute acts of domestic and sexual violence and assist victims of such violence.

I thank you.
