Amnesty International raises concern over the slow pace of implementation of key provisions of the new Constitution and political interference in the judiciary. The submission also highlights the organization's concerns about human rights violations, including unlawful killings, in the context of civil unrest and tension between politically opposed groups, discrimination and violence against Indigenous peoples and human right defenders, and continued impunity for human rights violations.
