The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR)

Without civil rights for everyone, Obama won't be the President of USA


Singapore has not signed this international civil rights treaty.



"is a multilateral treaty adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 16, 1966, and in force from March 23, 1976. It commits its parties to respect the civil and political rights of individuals, including the right to life, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, electoral rights and rights to due process and a fair trial. As of March 2012, the Covenant had 74 signatories and 167 parties."


I don't see any reason why Singapore should not sign this international treaty.
