Human rights commission urged to investigate hotel following ban on Aids group

A network of people living with HIV/Aids and their advocates Wednesday asked the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to investigate alleged rights violations and discrimination practices after a Bangkokbased hotel reportedly denied HIV/Aids NGOs' requests to host events at the hotel.

Aids Access Foundation director Nimit Tienudom said there were still problems such as the hotel's refusal to service the HIV/Aids NGOs.

"We don't know exactly what caused [the hotel ban] but [we] think, as a service provider, it should respect others and not discriminate against people living with HIV/Aids, because that is very bad vision," he added.
