UK and Saudi Arabia 'in secret deal' over human rights council place

The elevation of the Saudi kingdom to one of the UN’s most influential bodies in 2013 prompted fresh international criticism of its human rights record. This week, a new diplomatic row has erupted over a Shia activist, Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, who faces death by crucifixion after being convicted at the age of 17 of joining an anti-government demonstration. Riyadh has sanctioned more than a hundred beheadings so far this year – more, it is claimed, than Islamic State. The Saudi foreign ministry files, passed to Wikileaks in June, refer to talks with British diplomats ahead of the November 2013 vote in New York. Why Is Saudi Arabia Heading a UN Human Rights Council Panel? Her name is ‘Sparkle.’

Why Is Saudi Arabia Heading a UN Human Rights Council Panel?

She operates a drone. She is sick of whiny boys. And she is perfectly OK with dealing out death. Anne crawled out of bed in her North Las Vegas house around 10 p.m. and started to get ready for her shift. She pulled her chestnut hair into a bun and slipped on her olive green flight suit. Giving her dog, a tan Sher-Pei/pit bull mix, one last pat, she left her house and joined thousands of other workers leaving for the midnight shift. Anne, an Air Force staff sergeant, was—and still is—a remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) sensor operator or “sensor.” Saudi Arabia Is About To Behead And Crucify A 21-Year-Old Protester.

By Gil Kaufman 10/14/2015 Ali Mohammed al-Nimr was one of tens of thousands of young men who stood up to repressive governments across the Middle East during the 2011 to 2012 uprisings known as the Arab Spring.

Saudi Arabia Is About To Behead And Crucify A 21-Year-Old Protester

The then-17-year-old middle-class student, who loved photography and riding his bike, took part in protests in the Saudi Arabian city of Qatif in late 2011, watching as police arrested hundreds of marchers, some as young as 14, the Washington Post reports. Now, three years later, he is sitting on what amounts to death row in the country, awaiting a potentially gruesome fate for crimes he says he didn’t commit. Following the protest, the teen’s face was put on the government’s most-wanted list. On Feb. 12, 2012 he was run over by a police car while riding his bicycle and detained without an arrest warrant. When Ali’s mother went to visit him in August 2012, she said he didn’t look well because, as he told her, he’d been tortured by jailers until he confessed.

Rede SACI: Discapacidad y justicia

Amartya Sen* 1.Me siento muy privilegiado de estar presente en esta conferencia sobre discapacidad y desarrollo - una materia de inmensa importancia. También estoy muy agradecido por los comentarios gentiles de Jim Wolfensohn. Hay muy pocas personas en el mundo que yo admire tanto como a Jim, y es maravilloso para mí interactuar con él en esta reunión.

Las personas con discapacidades mentales o físicas son, no solamente los seres humanos con más privaciones del mundo, sino también, muy frecuentemente, los más olvidados.

03.pdf. 03.pdf. La relación entre la protección conferida por el derecho de los derechos humanos y el derecho internacional humanitario. Si bien el derecho internacional humanitario y el derecho de los derechos humanos difieren en cuanto a su origen y a las situaciones en que se aplican, estos dos cuerpos de normas tienen un mismo objetivo: proteger y salvaguardar a las personas en todas las circunstancias Dado que los Estados se muestran poco dispuestos a impulsar un mayor grado de codificación del derecho internacional humanitario y, en particular, de los mecanismos destinados a aplicarlo, cabe preguntarse cuáles han sido los avances en los cuerpos de normas colindantes y sus repercusiones en el derecho internacional humanitario [1] .

La relación entre la protección conferida por el derecho de los derechos humanos y el derecho internacional humanitario

Se ha de prestar especial atención al derecho internacional de los derechos humanos, puesto que, hoy en día, los derechos humanos forman parte integrante del derecho internacional en pro del bienestar común de la humanidad y representan valores comunes que ningún Estado puede derogar, ni siquiera en tiempo de guerra [2] .

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and international humanitarian law: A comment on the Tablada Case

She is currently employed at Erasmus University, Rotterdam, where she is working on a PhD thesis. She did research as a Fulbright Scholar at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (Washington, D.C). The author would like to thank Frits Kalshoven, Menno Kamminga, Sam Zia-Zarifi and André Nollkaemper for their helpful comments on matters discussed in this article. On 30 October 1997, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights [1 ] (hereafter the Commission) adopted its report in the so-called Tablada case [2 ] . The case concerned an attack launched by 42 armed persons on military barracks of the national armed forces in 1989 at La Tablada, Argentina. This decision is of considerable importance. Should the Tablada decision set a precedent?

The Commission explained that it should apply humanitarian law because this enhanced its ability to respond to situations of armed conflict. 1. 2. 3. Irrc_856_heintze.pdf. Derecho_Humanitario.pdf.
