Amnesty International Comments on the OSJI draft Global Principles on National Security and the Right to Information
In this document Amnesty International comments on the February 2012 version of the draft Global Principles on National Security and the Right to Information. The organization is concerned that several key aspects fall far short of established human rights standards. Amnesty International believes these serious problems can be rectified, but only by amending the proposed text of the Global Principles themselves. The problems that relevant text presents for each area of concern are discussed, followed by the changes needed to address them.
