Denmark welcomes the delegation of Singapore.

We commend Singapore on its gender review. However, we are concerned about freedom of expression and discrimination.

Denmark recommends the Government to

1. Repeal the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulations Act;  

2. Incorporate the principle of non-discrimination into domestic legislation, including on the basis of gender, sexual orientation and gender identify;

3. Ratify the Convention Against Torture.

Denmark wishes Singapore a successful review.
