PAKISTAN’S RESERVATIONS: A CHALLENGE TO THE INTEGRITY OF THE UNITED NATIONS HUMAN RIGHTS TREATY SYSTEM
23 June 2011
AI Index: ASA 33/006/2011
Pakistan must withdraw obstructive and legally impermissible reservations to core international human rights treaties, Amnesty International and the International Commission of Jurists said today.
The organizations expressed dismay that the government has failed to withdraw reservations that it entered on becoming party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the UN Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT), exactly one year ago.
The International Commission of Jurists observed a hearing on 10 November on the investigation of criminal charges against Sapiyat Magomedova, a lawyer in the Republic of Dagestan, Russian Federation, charged with “insult of a representative of state power” for allegedly assaulting several police officers. Contrary to the charges, Sapiyat Magomedova alleges that she was attacked and severely beaten by the officers.
