Human Rights Centre statement on the composition of the National Human Rights Commission

Human Rights Centre expresses concern over the selection process of the new members of the National Human Rights Commission.

On 3rd July 2018, the president of Somaliland Muse Behi Abdi has nominated seven new members for the National Human Rights Commission.

Human Rights Centre has closely observed the selection process to monitor that the composition of the institution is made in accordance with the National Human Rights Commission Act and Paris Principles.

The process was not transparent and was not carried out in accordance with the Act and Paris Principles.

We are disturbed by lack of transparency and disregard of the procedure and requirements laid down by the Act and Paris Principles.

Independent national human rights institutions play a significant role in the promotion and protection of human rights.

Recommendations

we call on the President of the Republic of Somaliland Muse Behi Abdi to reconsider his nominations and apply the National Human Rights Commission Act and Paris Principles in order to form an independent and impartial institution. The process has to be carried out according to the Act and in a transparent manner.

We call on the House of Representatives to apply the National Human Rights Act and Paris Principles.

 

Xarunta Xuquuqal Insaanka waxaay walaac ka qabtaa qaabka loo xulay Komishanka Xuquuqda Aadamaha

Xarunta Xuquuqal Insaanku waxaay ka walaacsan tahay qaabka loo xulay xubnaha cusub ee Komishanka Xuquuqda Aadamaha ee Somaliland.

3dii July 2018 waxa madaxwaynaha Somaliland mudane Muuse Biixi Cabdi uu magacaabay xubnaha Komishanka Xuquuqda Aadamaha.

Xaruntu waxaay si dhow ula socotay hanaanka xulista si loo xaqiijiyo in loo maro qaab waafaqsan Xeerka Komishank Xuquuqal Aadanaha iyo Mabaadida Baariis (Paris Principle). Mabaadida Baariis (Paris Principle) waa mabaadi ay Qaramada Midoobay u dhigtay qaabka loo xulayo iyo sida ay u shaqeeyaan hay’adaha qaran ee xuquuqal insaanku.

Hanaanka xulistu ma ahayn mid daah furan oo loo maray si waafaqsan Xeerka iyo Mabaadida Baariis (Paris Principle).

Waxaanu aad uga walaacsanahay maqnaashaha daah-furnaanta iyo in la iska baal maray habka iyo shuruudaha sharcigu dhigay.

Gudi qaran oo xuquuqal insaan oo madax-banaan islamarkaana dhex-dhexaad ahi wuxuu ka ciyaaraa door muhiim ah kobcinta iyo ilaalinta xuquuqal insaanka.

Talo-soo jeedin

Waxaanu ugu baaqaynaa Madaxwaynaha Somaliland mudane Muuse Biixi Cabdi inuu dib u eegis ku sameeyo magacaabista oo uu dabaqo Mabaadida Baariis (Paris Principle) si loo abuuro gudi qaran oo madax-banaani iyo dhex-dhexaadnimo leh.

Waxaanu u soo jeedinaynaa Golaha Wakiilada inay raacaan Mabaadida Baariis (Paris Principle).
