    Paneldebatt:

    Svart/kvitt eller fargepalett? Nye perspektiv på valg og opposisjon i Russland

I denne paneldebatten får me nye perspektiv frå opposisjon, akademia og organisasjonslivet i Russland – på ei problemstilling som slett ikkje er så svart/kvit som du kanskje trudde.

  • Credibility of ICTY must be restored

    International Justice:

    Credibility of ICTY must be restored

    The Norwegian Helsinki Committee is deeply concerned about the situation at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (‘ICTY’), created by acquittals in 2012-2013 and a deep split among its judges. The concerns have been conveyed in a letter to President of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (‘MICT’), former ICTY President, current ICTY judge and a key player of the institution. According to the letter, the acquittals represent changes in the direction at a very late stage of the ICTY’s life. They “disorient victims, their families, and the wider struggle against impunity ... there remains a strong, unanswered case for [Theodor Meron] to take responsibility for the unfortunate situation at ICTY”.

    Statement: Another human rights lawyer at risk of disbarment in Azerbaijan

    The Norwegian Helsinki Committee and the other undersigned members of the Sport for Rights coalition express serious concern regarding the on-going disciplinary case against Yalchin Imanov, a prominent human rights lawyer in Azerbaijan. Any disciplinary sanctions against the lawyer could severely undermine his independence as member of the legal profession and hinder his important and legitimate professional activity.
