Highlights of our latest newsletter…

IHR LEGAL Newsletter – July to September 2022

  • On July 7, 2022, the ECtHR ruled that Italian authorities did not respond with the requisite promptness and diligence in dealing with domestic violence in the case of “M.S. v. Italy“. The applicant, M.S., an Italian national, was assaulted, harassed, and threatened for years by her then-husband, D.P., for which reason she filed several complaints against him. However, the State authorities began to take measures late, for which reason the ECtHR held the State responsible for the period in which it did not take effective measures. 

 

  • On August 25, 2022, the ACHPR expressed its deep concern about the human rights situation in the Republic of Guinea. The Republic of Guinea is facing serious challenges, which result in violations of human rights, particularly freedom of expression, association, and peaceful assembly, as well as the right to life and physical integrity. Protests have been harshly repressed and there has been excessive use of force by security forces, resulting in a multitude of arrests, injuries, and several deaths. 

 

  • On September 8, 2022, Volker Türk was appointed as High Commissioner for Human Rights. With the end of the term of Ms. Michelle Bachelet, who served as High Commissioner from 1 September 2018 through 31 August 2022, the term of her successor, Mr. Volker Türk, begins, who has a long career in the promotion of universal human rights. 

 

  • On September 8, 2022, the IACHR requested the IACtHR provisional measures for 45 persons deprived of liberty in eight Nicaraguan detention centers. The individuals are identified as demonstrators of the protests initiated in 2018 and opponents of the current government, in addition to being members of various sectors of civil society. The aforementioned persons have been held incommunicado, and placed in conditions of deplorable detention, these being some of the reasons that motivated the request for provisional measures.
