Fiji: Protect freedoms and stop torture: Amnesty International submission to the UN Universal Periodic Review, October-November 2014

, Index number: ASA 18/002/2014

In this submission, Amnesty International notes serious shortcomings in the national human rights framework such as the independence of the judiciary. The organization is also concerned about laws, policies and practices that unlawfully restrict the rights to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly of government critics, human rights defenders, trade union leaders and media, among others. Workers’ rights continue to be heavily restricted and reports continue of torture and ill-treatment by security forces, in a prevailing culture of impunity.
