Report of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on the situation of human rights defenders, A/HRC/4/37/Add.1, 27 March 2007: Argentina

29. The Special Representative is disappointed by the  National Appeal Courts decision to uphold the resolution passed by the General Inspectorate for Justice (IGJ) to deny the Asociación de Lucha por la Identidad Travestí Transexual (ALITT) legal personality. She is concerned that the IGJ’s argument that ALITT’s objectives do not comply with the definition of ‘for the common good’ as outlined in Article 3 (2) of the Criminal Code, is contrary to Article 5 of the Declaration on human rights defenders.
