The ICJ has submitted an alternative report to the Human Rights Committee for the evaluation of Indonesia’s implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
In its submission, prepared as a report alternative to Indonesia’s initial report to the Human Rights Committee, the ICJ addresses issues concerning the right to an effective remedy; the right to life; and rights of persons belonging to minorities. This follows the ICJ’s submission of information to the Committee in December 2012 in the preparation of a list of issues for the examination of Indonesia. The current report calls on the Committee to make recommendations on articles 2, 6, 7 and 27 of the ICCPR.
The initial report of Indonesia will be considered by the Human Rights Committee during its 108th session held in Geneva on 8 to 26 July 2013, following which the Committee will adopt Concluding Observations with recommendations.
