Enhancing standards, ensuring remedy: UNHRC statement

Statement by International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), Fédération internationale des ligues des droits de l’homme (FIDH), Franciscans International, and CIDSE at the United Nations Human Rights Council 26th Regular Session, June 10 to 27 2014

These facts are serious signs that stronger regulatory and accountability mechanisms are needed without any further delay.”
