BANDOS, THE MALDIVES – The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay on Monday urged South Asian judges to continue developing “cutting-edge mechanisms for opening up justice to all.” At the opening of a key encounter of regional judges and experts from the Office of the High Commissioner and the Human Rights Council, Pillay stressed in a video message that “inequality and discrimination remain an enormous challenge across the world,” and singled out what she described as “the burden of multiple discrimination” that affects women, the poor, caste groups and indigenous peoples, among many others.
