New Website on Human Rights In Ireland
Check out this new website – www.rightsmonitor.org – which has gone live today. It is an initiative by three Irish NGOs: Free Legal Advice Centres (FLAC), the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL), and the Irish Penal Reform Trust (IPRT). This summer, the site’s focus will be on Ireland’s performance under the United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which will come under formal examination by the UN Human Rights Committee in Geneva next Monday and Tuesday (14 and 15 July 2008).
