We have corrected this dispatch to indicate that independent regional media reports about the arrest took place in mid-April.
At least 84 countries have imposed emergency policies and measures due to the COVID-19 crisis, but according to publicly available notifications deposited with the UN, only 11 countries have formally informed the UN of derogations from their human rights obligations as of April 15.
The February 17, 2017 report incorrectly stated that there was no procedure in place to allow people to apply for an emergency e-pass if it is needed for family emergency or other extraordinary situations, however this only pertains to medical emergency or other extraordinary situations. Additionally, the crossing points are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the summer, instead of closing at 10 p.m.
