Concluding observations VN Mensenrechtencomité

Russian Federation

Op 2 april 2015 heeft het VN Mensenrechtencomité de concluding observations van de review van de Russische Federatie uitgegeven. Het Comité beoordeelde de afgelopen weken in hoeverre de Russische Federatie de internationale mensenrechten verplichtingen die op het land rusten naleeft.

Lawyers for Lawyers verwelkomt met name aanbeveling 18, waarin het Comité de Russische autoriteiten oproept tot het volgende: “to take immediate steps to provide, in practice, effective protection to lawyers, journalists, human rights defenders and opposition politicians whose lives, safety and security are under threat due to their work in monitoring and reporting on human rights issues and on other matters of legal and public interest, and refrain from taking any measures that may constitute harassment or persecution or undue interference in the exercise of their work or of their right to freedom of opinion and expression. It should effectively investigate, prosecute and bring perpetrators of the above acts to justice.”

In een oral statement en een submission heeft Lawyers for Lawyers benadrukt dat de Russische Federatie heeft nagelaten haar advocaten te beschermen en het recht op effectieve wettelijke vertegenwoordiging te waarborgen.
