Ministerial Council meeting and the adoption of the draft Statute of the Arab Court of Human Rights
In this joint advocacy letter organizations, working for the protection and promotion of human rights internationally and within the member States of the League of Arab States (LAS), write to express concerns at the prospect of the impending adoption of a draft Statute for an Arab Court of Human Rights (the Arab Court). They urge Governments to move to defer action on the proposed draft Statute with a view to revising the draft Statute to ensure its accordance with international human rights law and standards.
