Comments on the Counter terrorism legislative framework in the Syrian Arab Republic. In this regard, I am providing analysis of the two pertinent Laws enacted in July 2012 namely: Law No.19 of 2012 on Countering Terrorism (hereafter the Law or the CT Law), and Law No. 22 of 2012 establishing the Counter-Terrorism Court (CTC).

Informations reçues concernant des mesures en matière de de-risking (réductions des risques) prises par le prestataire de services monétaires Wise à l'encontre de l'organisation Action Droits des Musulmans (ADM), organisation française basée à Paris, qui entraînerait des conséquences importantes pour les droits humains d'ADM, ses dirigeants, membres et bénéficiaires. Ces mesures de de-risking, soi-disant conformes aux directives étatiques, entraîneraient des conséquences importantes en matière de droits humains pour l’ADM, sa direction, ses membres et bénéficiaires, et résulteraient de l'incapacité de l’entreprise à évaluer pleinement les risques en matière de droits humains conformément aux Principes directeurs relatifs aux entreprises et aux droits de l'homme. Nous soulignons que les mesures de de-risking ainsi que les allégations plus larges de discrimination, d'intimidation et de stigmatisation constitueraient de graves violations des droits fondamentaux à la liberté de religion ou de croyance, de réunion pacifique et d'association, d'expression et d'opinion, des droits à une procédure régulière, et des droits économiques, sociaux et culturels fondamentaux, y compris les droits au travail et à la propriété.

Information gathered during the recent technical visit to the camps, prisons and other detention facilities in the Northeast of the Syrian Arab Republic, which took place from 15 to 20 July 2023. In the context of this visit, I was able to monitor the human rights and humanitarian situation in this extremely complex setting, interview individuals held in places of detention, and corroborate information received about serious and systematic breaches of international law, which would involve responsibility for core crimes. In particular, I would like to highlight the cases of an Australian mother and her five Australian children, who have been subjected to prolonged and arbitrary detention in Al-Roj camp, in the Northeast of Syria, in conditions amounting to torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. I further bring to your Excellency’s Government attention information received on the case of an Australian adolescent boy, whose fate and whereabouts remain unknown following conflicting information on his potential death due to injuries sustained during an armed attack on the Gweiran (Sina’a) Prison, where he was believed to be held at the time.

Information received about an alleged submission of Mr. Andrzej Poczobut, who is serving a prison sentence in penal colony No. 1 in Navapolatsk, to practices which may amount to torture, cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. We would also like to bring to your attention allegations which reveal possible disregard of several international human rights standards in relation to Mr. Poczobut’s prosecution and conviction.

Informations reçues concernant deux ressortissantes belges actuellement détenues dans le camp d’Al-Roj dans le nord-est Syrien, qui n’auraient pas été rapatriées car, n’ayant pas d’enfants à charge dans les camps, elles auraient été exclues de la politique de rapatriement du gouvernement de votre Excellence.

Comments on the draft Republika Srpska law on the Special Registry and Publicity of the Work on Non-Profit Organisations (“the Draft Law”). The international community recognizes the need to ensure that the NPO sector operates openly and positively and that a risk-based approach is taken to ensure that the elements of the NPO sector are not misused as well as the need for the sector to be transparent. However, in its current draft form, we are concerned that the proposed law would place restrictions that are inconsistent with international human rights standards, especially the right to freedom of association, freedom to participate in public affairs, freedom of expression, and the full access to economic and social rights for persons working in the NPO sector. We are also concerned that should this legislation be passed, NPOs may struggle to continue to function freely and effectively as a result.
