Conectas submits contributions to the Office of Human Rights of the Presidency
Conectas submitted contributions on Friday, January 23, to the Office of Human Rights of the Presidency of the Republic (SDH/PR), which has opened up its planning process for the next four years to public consultation.
The 12 suggestions included a more comprehensive conversation between the office and civil society on the limits of the use of force by police officers at demonstrations, the reform of the Drug Law with a view to decriminalization, the adoption of a new immigration law that respects human rights and support for the “Slave Labor Blacklist”.
The organization also emphasized the need to support the bills currently pending in Congress on the demilitarization of the police, to ratify the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) and to demonstrate a greater commitment to funding the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR).
The questionnaire provided on the website of the SDH/PR asking what the priorities for the office should be in terms of public policy in the field of human rights was available to civil society from January 14-23.
