The following is a communication from the Asian Human Rights Commission, Hong Kong:
Following the introduction a few months ago of the new website of the Asian Human Rights Commission we wish to inform you that the AHRC will discontinue its old website at www.ahrchk.net with effect from today. We invite all friends, partners, activists and interested persons to visit the AHRC's new website at
The new online portal about the human rights situation in Asian countries features search specific RSS feeds, improved content integration, a live search and the AHRCs' new podcasts together with many other new features. A complete review of the page's design, content structure and facilities makes information and contents more easily accessible and the site one of the most resourceful places about human rights in Asia in the internet with updates and new cases every few hours.
What this change means for visitors:
• You will find all past and future updates about the human rights situation in Asia on www.humanrights.asia
• Visitors to the old site be automatically redirected to www.humanrights.asia
• The old site will not be updated and no content additions will be made there
• You will be able to find your content much faster with the search box in www.humanrights.asia
• You can follow us via news feeds on the themes and countries you are interested in
• Other websites under subdomains of ahrchk.net will still be available under their old address such as material.ahrchk.net
• You can follow AHRC on twitter and facebook at http://twitter.com/humanrightsasia and http://www.facebook.com/asianhumanrightscommission
