UNHRC 31: Egypt-led “terrorism” resolution is a danger to human rights

ARTICLE 19 is deeply concerned by an Egypt-led resolution on “the effects of terrorism on the enjoyment of human rights”, adopted by vote at the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) on 24 March. The resolution threatens international human rights law, including on freedom of expression, providing potential justification for abusive “counter-terrorism” measures.
