BURUNDI: LETTER TO UNHRC FROM HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS

http://hrw.org/english/docs/2008/09/12/burund19797.htm

As representatives of national and international human
rights organizations working in Burundi, we urge you to
extend the mandate of the Independent Expert on the
situation of human rights in Burundi. He has been and
should continue to be an effective counselor to the
Government of Burundi, a firm support to Burundian civil
society organizations, and a passionate voice for victims
of human rights abuses.

GLOBAL: STATES URGED TO PRIORITIZE VICTIMS' RIGHTS

The OSCE Special Representative
for Combating Trafficking
in Human Beings, Eva Biaudet,
has urged OSCE participating
States to put victims' rights
at the centre when
investigating and prosecuting
human trafficking cases.
"The victim-centred approach
means taking the needs of the
trafficking victim to be protected,
assisted and ultimately
empowered to live a dignified
life, as the fundamental
starting point during all phases
of criminal proceedings,"
Biaudet said at the opening of
a high-level conference in
Helsinki.

In June this year, the United Nations (UN) extended,

John Ruggie’s mandate to continue finding solutions
to bridge the gap between business and human rights.

of globalisation given the increasing mobility of big
companies marching across the planet in search of the
best labour deals in the most pliable working
environments
