Statement of His Excellency Abp. Tomasi Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the UN

Statement of His Excellency Archbishop Silvano M. Tomasi Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva at the 26th Session of the Human Rights Council (11 June 2014).

CIDSE warmly welcomes the Statement of His Excellency Archbishop Silvano M. Tomasi, Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations, in favour of a binding treaty at the UNHRC. CIDSE wholeheartedly agrees with his question: “how can we convince international corporations to rise up willingly to this responsibility if no national legal obligation binds them to do so?

In order to share his message with our partners and allies, CIDSE and Franciscans International have translated the document into French and Spanish.

CIDSE will closely follow the UNHRC process.
