http://wiryninyderi.tk Since the beginning of military conflict in Donbas near children died, more than were injured. Every time when recommitment to ceasefire takes place, even for a few days or weeks, it saves lives and spares people from life outering injuries. Difficulties with demarcation line crossing in the conflict area is one of indirect human rights violation.
It needs a lot of time, money and physical efforts. According to Mission data, more than civilians cross demarcation line every day, near 1 million thousand people per month. During the period from April to June near thousands of internally displaced persons had lost the access to pensions because of Ukrainian Government policy.
We hope, this decision will lead to national policy to ensure the payment of pensions to all Ukrainian citizens no matter where they reside. Adoption of law about missing persons on July 12, which is intended to support the families of disappeared people and to ensure the investigation of such cases according to rule of international law is a positive note.
The report calls to provide the right for fair trial regarding the cases in military actions zone. However, during the last 5 years there has been no comprehensive policy of reparation or compensation for civilians who suffered in the conflict area. Monitoring Mission has noted the progress in investigation concerning Maidan and Odesa events in May It is reported that the crimes against human rights at the uncontrolled territories of Luhansk and Donetsk regions are committed by illegally created structures.
The most common accusation is the connections with Ukrainian military.
From a human rights standpoint we probably have a number of preconceptions about Africa — large scale atrocities and impunity. While that is horribly true in places there are also aspects of the cases highlighted in our map that might surprise some. There is also the range of fora in Africa that offer remedies.
In addition to the obvious forum — the Commission and Court of the African regional human rights system, we have cases from the East-African Court of Justice and the ECOWAS Community Court both finding that they are empowered to adjudicate on human rights issues as universal as the rights of indigenous peoples and anti-slavery.
The modern proliferation of rights is often a topic of humorous exaggeration. These cases exemplify a great breadth of rights beyond the classic civil and political rights of freedom from torture, or free speech.
Where it does address these topics there is a novel twist: on torture, whether it is OK to extradite criminals to a place where they face torture; on free speech, whether Holocaust denial should be protected. Others bring in group rights: self-determination, rights of indigenous peoples, and even the rights of tribes imported via the slave trade.
Opponents of human rights litigation often point out that these rights are frequently claimed by people whom we deplore. It is true that many of the people making claims in these cases were accused of murder and terrorism, or at least were sworn enemies of the state that allegedly abused them.
With so many human rights remedies available there is a temptation for litigants, whether states or individuals, to use human rights as a way to get an issue before a court. Ordinarily Russia could refuse to submit to a legal procedure at the ICJ, but the CERD contains a provision saying that in any dispute under that treaty between two states that have ratified it which Russia and Georgia had both parties must agree to the jurisdiction of the ICJ.
You might think the clustering of pins in our map is about abuses, but actually it demonstrates access to a legal process and, depending on implementation a remedy. These 50 cases are by no measurable sense the 50 greatest or most important cases, but they do amply demonstrate the expansion and increasing profile of this, mostly admirable, element of the rule of law.
