Live from Geneva: Bangladeh representatives asks Lebanon to respect rights of MDWs

As part of Lebanon's Universal Periodic Review session being held now in Geneva, and during the question session addressed to the Lebanon delegation headed by secretary-general of the ministry of foreign affairs, William Habib, the representative of Bengladesh expressed worries on the situation of domestic workers, and recommended Lebanon to afford further protection to migrant domestic workers.

I had already raised the issue of MDWs during yesterday's side event (Al-Akhbar coverage) that was attended by many organizations and the Lebanon delegation. Photos from yesterday's side event.
