Human Rights Watch's statement
Human Rights Watch is deeply concerned about the UK government’s plans to scrap the Human Rights Act and limit the role of the European Court of Human Rights in the UK, or failing that even to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights.
As the Senate considers the USA Freedom Act this week, policymakers should strengthen it by limiting large-scale collection of records and reinforcing transparency and carrying court reforms further.
We write in advance of the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (“the Committee”) review of Venezuela to highlight the government’s failure to ensure that essential medicines and medical supplies are available and accessible to all in the country.
