Statement by the Delegation of Thailand

Ms. Chalongkwan Tavarayuth, First Secretary

at the Review of Switzerland

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

on Thursday 9 November 2017 from 09.00 to 12.30 hrs.

 

Mr. President,

Thailand commends positive developments in Switzerland, including the endeavor to convert the Swiss Centre of Expertise in Human Rights into a national human rights institution in full compliance with the Paris Principles.

While noting the anti-trafficking efforts, we are concerned with reported cases of human trafficking and recommend Switzerland to seriously combat human trafficking and sexual exploitation, ensure victim assistance, prosecute human traffickers, as well as enhance further cooperation with the countries concerned.

Considering the current development and tendency of the immigration policy,
we recommend Switzerland to enhance measures to effectively and comprehensively combat racism, discrimination and xenophobia, including by addressing the problems faced by migrants, especially migrant workers, and ensuring integration of migrants in the local community and labour market.

I thank you.
