Highlights of our latest newsletter…

IHR LEGAL Newsletter – October to December 2022

  • On December 16, 2022, the OHCHR published a report urging to rethink temporary labor migration programs. According to the OHCHR, such programs impose serious restrictions and can cause serious human rights violations. The report covers several key topics, including the responsibility of States, the consequences of these programs, and the recommendations for States to mitigate human rights violations against these workers.

 

  • On October 4, 2022, the ACHPR made an urgent appeal for the cessation of massive human rights violations against the Benet Mosopisyek community in Uganda. The ACHPR received reports showing that the Benet indigenous people have faced forced evictions, numerous acts of violence, intimidation, threats, sexual violence, destruction, and confiscation of property carried out by members of the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA). Consequently, the ACHPR requested the State to cease all violence and harassment.

 

  • On October 13, 2022, the ECtHR ruled that national courts failed to strike a balance between the interests at stake in a case in which an activist of the Femen movement held a topless protest in a church. After being convicted for her protest, the applicant brought the case before the ECtHR, alleging a violation of her right to freedom of expression. The ECtHR concluded that her right to freedom of expression had been violated since, according to its analysis, the applicant sought through her action to contribute to the public debate on women’s rights, particularly on abortion.

 

  • On November 8, 2022, the IACHR published its third report of the special follow-up mechanism on the Ayotzinapa case, regarding the 43 missing students from the “Raúl Isidro Burgos” rural school in Ayotzinapa, Mexico. The students have been missing since September 26, 2014, when they were attacked by the police after getting into a bus that The IACHR has monitored the actions taken by Mexico and in its last report made a series of recommendations to the State.
