Amnesty International Official Urges Human Rights Council to Take Decisions Regarding Sudan and Russia

Sudan Events – Talal Mudathir

Erika Guevara Rosas, director of research, advocacy, policy and campaigns at Amnesty International, said in a statement on Tuesday, “The Human Rights Council’s resolutions on Sudan and Russia are considered a critical test for the Council on whether or not it can override the political interests of member states.”
Rosas urged member states to establish a mechanism to monitor violations committed by parties to the conflict in Sudan and to extend the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on human rights in Russia.
Rosas’s statements come before the conclusion of session 54 of the United Nations Human Rights Council meeting on October 13, in which member states will decide whether to establish a mechanism to monitor human rights in Sudan and expand the scope of reporting on human rights in Russia.
