Chinese experts discuss Law on Human Rights


China Daily:


Uygur Prisoners"Speaking at a forum on human rights development, which was held by the China Foundation for Human Rights Development (CFHRD) on Friday, Feng Jiancang, director of a human rights research center under the Ministry of Justice said China should enact the Law on Human Rights as soon as possible and formulate a pyramid-structured legal system to comprehensively protect human rights. "

I do not exactly know what the director is trying to get at here. He speaks of the constitution at the Apex of this pyramid then the Law on Human Rights at the upper middle and 'other laws, such as Law on Women Interests Protection, Law on Teenagers Protection and Law on the Disabled, at the lower middle and all regulations on citizen's rights protection at the bottom' Feng tried to explain.

I do not particularly care if he is taking the famed Chinese "scientific" approach a little to far it is just good that this fairly foreign concept, "Human Rights" is getting aired at all.
