The passing of the Border Protection Act by the Australian Parliament was vigorously opposed by all of Australia’s key medical groups. Doctors and other health workers have taken to the streets to protest about being threatened with 2 years imprisonment if they report abuse affecting patients in their care in any of Australia’s offshore asylum seeker detention facilities.

"The Cambodian Government is to be commended for the introduction of the Juvenile Justice Law. It is the culmination of hard work by many people and organisations and we at Children's Rights International are proud to have been involved in this process. In doing so we have worked closely with our partners, Legal Aid Cambodia and UNICEF in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice over many years. I make particular mention of Legal Aid Cambodia whose dedication to the rights of children in Cambodia has provided great leadership in this process".
