UN Human Rights Committee: Observations on the revised draft General Comment 35 on article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights

Index Number: IOR 41/013/2014

Rather than commenting on every aspect of the revised draft, the present submission aims to inform the current process by providing Amnesty International’s main observations and recommendations. In addition to the Human Rights Committee’s practice, which forms the primary source of interpretation of article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), this document also draws on pertinent international and regional standards, rulings, decisions and observations with a view to providing supplemental authority for the Committee’s consideration.
