A few days ago you had as the Declaration of human rights signed by the 10 leaders of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian) is a pantomime because they do not include discrimination based on sexual orientation or identity protection of gender (SOGI).. For this reason, the International Commission on human rights of Gays and lesbians has expressed, along with other 60 organizations, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, its rejection of the same, describing it as "not worthy of its name".

After a few days, Datin Seri Paduka Rosmah Mansour, wife of the Prime Minister of Malaysia, (a photocopy of the sadly known Imelda Marcos, wife of former filipino dictator) has justified the exclusion of the LGBT collective of the contravertida Declaration for the protection of human rights signed in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, last week. In an interview with the Phnom Penh Post said: "we know that HIV / AIDS takes place and how are propagated, gays are to blame. The number of persons infected by HIV is alarming. Is this what you want to allow or want it to contain?.

At another time of the interview the wife of the Prime Minister of Malaysia says bluntly that eliminate homosexuality will be the only way to contain the spread of AIDS: "They have to cut that (homosexuality) root. "If you don't, when you get the time and wish to stop it (homosexuality), they discover that it is too late".

The President of the Cambodian Center for human rights, Ou Virak'kara, describes false Rosmah and extremely homophobic comment: "come, we're in 2012″said Virak'kara. "The world knows that that is not true. This confirms our fears about the statement: "these clauses have been included to give the excuse to Governments in Southeast Asia to not rectify the universal principles of human rights".

Rosmah described human rights as "rights of the individual based on their beliefs, culture and religion". In the opinion of the wife's of the Prime Minister of Malaysia: "Recognizing the rights of the LGTB collective is OK for other countries but in Malaysia they are based on the righteousness of morality". In the month of June, the First Minister Malay, Mohammed Najib Abdul Razak, described gays as: "people with appearance deviated and for which there is no place in the country".

In Cambodia, its leaders think that gays, human rights will never be protected and will be a reality in Southeast Asia.
