Bangkok, Dec 1 (EFE).- Activist groups called for a review of plans for the inauguration of a rehabilitation center for LGBT+ people and individuals considered “deviant” in Malaysia and reiterated their concern about possible human rights violations that this would imply. “Detaining people on the grounds of changing their SOGIE – sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression – amounts to torture without a doubt,” NGO Justice for Sisters’ co-founder Thilaga Sulathireh said in a statement. Mohd Fared Mohd Khalid, the Islamic Religious Affairs Committee of Johor’s chairman, announced an allocation of MYR400,000 (about $86,000) for the creation of a rehabilitation center for LGBT+ people scheduled to open in July 2024.
