JAKARTA (JP): The secretary general of the Human Rights Commission warned companies to respect the rights of their workers, including the right of women laborers to have menstruation leaves. 

Baharuddin Lopa said yesterday, while receiving protesting workers of a garment manufacturer, that checking menstruation by ordering the workers to take off their undergarments is "intolerable."

"Starting tomorrow, no stripping should be allowed," Lopa said after some 90 laborers of PT Duta Busana Danastri had told him at the commission's office on Jl. Veteran, Central Jakarta.
