India: Eighth session of the UN Human Rights Council, 2-20 June 2008: Review of India under the Universal Periodic Review: Amnesty International’s reflections on the outcome

, N° d'index: ASA 20/012/2008

In this document Amnesty International questions the statement by the government that the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) of India is as powerful and independent as India’s Supreme Court. Amnesty International has had concerns about the NHRC’s independence and authority since its establishment in 1993. Amnesty International recommends the government commit to ending impunity for human rights violations by the police and the security forces and to remove all legislative provisions which might prevent accountability for such human rights violations.
