El Instituto Internacional del Ombudsman (IIO) expresa su apoyo a la Comisión Nacional de los Derechos Humanos (CNDH) de México, la cual enfrenta lamentables descalificaciones y comentarios perjudiciales pronunciados por el Gobierno mexicano, en el ejercicio de su mandato constitucional, como organismo independiente, en la protección y promoción de los derechos humanos de los mexicanos.
As part of the UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in New York (9 July – 18 July 2019) the Permanent Missions of Austria and Malaysia to the United Nations in New York hosted a side event coving the topic of “Protecting the Rule of Law & Human Rights and Advancing Access to Justice”. Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA) organized the event content-wise and invited several renowned officials to speak and debate about actions and strategies to protect the human rights of democracy activists, to ensure that the “Rule of Law” is “human rights’ centered” under SDG Goal 16 and the role of Ombudsman institutions in this context.
