[English] [français]

Twelfth session of the Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review held from 3 to 14 October

Seventeen States had their human rights records examined during the twelfth session of the Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review Working Group that was held in Geneva from 3 to 14 October 2011. These countries are (in order of review) Tajikistan, the United Republic of Tanzania, Antigua and Barbuda, Swaziland, Trinidad and Tobago, Thailand, Ireland, Togo, the Syrian Arab Republic, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Iceland, Zimbabwe, Lithuania, Uganda, Timor Leste, the Republic of Moldova, and Haiti.

An ACAT exist in Togo. FIACAT is following this review with a particular interest.

Haiti’s review had initially been scheduled for 11 May 2010 but due to the devastating earthquake, which had affected Haiti in January 2010, the Human Rights Council, in a Special Session held on 27 January 2010, had endorsed the request of the Haitian Government to postpone the review of this country to no later than the last session of the first Universal Periodic Review cycle.

By the end of this two-week session, all 192 Member States of the United Nations had their human rights records examined by the Universal Periodic Review Working Group. The mechanism had thus reached the end of its first four-year cycle.
