NCHRO Condemns authorities Targeting Human Rights Organizations, Demanding Drop all Charges PDF Print E-mail

August 18, 2016, New Delhi:

alt NCHRO demanded that the authorities must immediately drop all charges against Amnesty India, It is not a crime assembly and report human rights violations. The FIR against Amnesty India is indicative of the shrinking human rights space in the country and authorities must immediately drop all charges against Amnesty and stop intimidating dissenting voices. The true injustice is that human rights organization is  being punished for reporting on torture, extra judicial killings and forced disappearances.
