Switzerland: ICJ submission to the Human Rights Committee
The ICJ provided its views to the Human Rights Committee for the consideration of the 3rd Periodic Report of Switzerland.
In this submission, the ICJ highlights several issues which it considers should be of particular concern to the Committee in its consideration of the Swiss report. In particular, the ICJ is concerned at certain provisions of the Swiss legislation on asylum-seekers and migrants that affect adversely the principle of non-refoulement, their right to a fair expulsion procedure (Article 13 ICCPR) and their right not to be detained arbitrarily (Article 9 ICCPR).
