Information received concerning forced evictions and housing demolitions that occurred in the city of Delhi and other cities that held G20 events. Many of the evictions took place prior to and during the planning of the G20 events in the early morning, without affected individuals having received adequate notice, and resulted in the destruction of their belongings. In most instances, no suitable alternative housing was offered. It is also alleged that the evictions were carried out with municipal authorities and accompanying security forces resorting to disproportionate use of force. In addition, street vendors were reportedly manhandled or prohibited from exercising their businesses in several locations, and faced the confiscation or destruction of their merchandise, contrary to international human rights standards and national law.

Concerns expressed in relation to the draft law No. 566, titled “Introduction of Article 614-bis on the Criminal Code, on the protection of the inviolability of the home from arbitrary occupation, as well as provisions concerning the reinstatement of the owner or rightful holder in possession”. The law if adopted with proposed amendments would introduce a new offense in the Criminal Code, and provide for accelerated proceeding for the immediate forced eviction of persons without tenancy status of occupied property, including immediate arrest. Persons committing arbitrary occupation of property can be punished with a prison term between 2 and 7 years, Additionally, it foresees the disconnection of utilities within 15 days upon a simple complaint by the owner. Concern is expressed that this law if passed unchanged lead to the criminalization of persons in precarious situations, and reduce procedural guarantees to protect the occupants of a dwelling from being pushed into homelessness.

Informations reçues concernant les politiques d’expulsion des migrants sans papiers et de l’éradication des habitats informels occupés principalement par des migrants, sans aucune consultation ou solution de relogement fournie aux communautés affectées. Selon les informations recueillies, ces politiques n’ont pas pris en compte l’extrême vulnérabilité des communautés de migrants. Les migrants sans papiers sont présumément expulsés en violation du principe de non-refoulement, sans évaluation individuelle ni garantie de procédure régulière, tandis que les habitats informels sont ciblés pour être détruits sans aucune consultation de leurs résidents ni fourniture d’un logement alternatif adéquat.

Information received concerning the halt of food provision to migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in the Mavrovouni Closed Controlled Access Centre (C.C.A.C.) on the island of Lesvos in Greece and the detrimental effects it has on the human rights of the individuals residing in this reception facility. The reported instances of deliberate food insecurity imposed upon individuals who are not part of the formal asylum process (including recognized refugees and individuals whose protection claims have been rejected) in Lesvos, constitute clear violations of their human rights to sufficient access to food, healthcare, and clean water.

Information received concerning the imminent risk of execution of three persons and long prison convictions of three others, in the context of alleged persecution of members of the Howeitat tribe. Messrs. Shadly Ahmad Mahmoud Abou Taqiqa al-Huwaiti, Ibrahim Salih Ahmad Abou Khalil al-Huwaiti and Atallah Moussa Mohammed al-Huwaiti, have been sentenced to death. Messrs. Abdelnasser Ahmad Mahmoud Abou Taqiqa al-Huwaiti, Mahmoud Ahmad Mahmoud Abou Taqiqa al-Huwaiti and Abdullah Dakhilallah al-Huwaiti, have been handed severe prison sentences. All are convicted for terrorist acts, which are allegedly baseless, and they are rather being punished for merely voicing their opposition to the forced evictions of the Howeitat tribe, including on social media. Some of them have allegedly been subjected to torture and ill-treatment while in custody, including prolonged solitary confinement, for the purpose of extracting confessions. The six, along with other members of the Howeitat tribe, have been resisting evictions from their homes under the NEOM project, part of the Saudi 2030 Vision. The NEOM project is being implemented allegedly without genuine consultation, free prior and informed consent, and access to effective remedies of the Howeitat tribe, whose members have been threatened with evictions from Al Khuraiba, Sharma and Gayal villages. NEOM is a project of the Saudi Public Investment Fund, which owns 100% of a closed joint-stock company named Neom.

Informations reçues concernant dépôt de la proposition de loi n°360 visant à protéger les logements contre l’occupation illicite, et nous avons pu prendre connaissance du texte tel qu'adopté en seconde lecture par la Commission des affaires économiques de l'Assemblée nationale (n°1010). Ce texte fera l'objet d'un débat en séance plénière à l'Assemblée nationale, selon nos informations, le 29 mars 2023, avant, le cas échéant, sa transmission au Sénat. Nous craignons que la loi, si elle est adoptée sans modification, n'aboutisse à la criminalisation de certaines personnes en situation de précarité, à une accélération des procédures d'expulsion locative sans alternative de logement adéquat et une réduction éventuelle des garanties procédures visant à protéger les occupants d'un logement et à limiter le risque de sans-abrisme.

Information received concerning allegations of racial discrimination in Louisiana, specifically land use and zoning decisions that have classified the land as suitable for industrial facilities in the areas populated by African American communities. We have been informed of racial discrimination in relation to the right to a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment in Louisiana; namely, certain Parishes within the State of Louisiana are allegedly adopting and implementing zoning practices that unfairly discriminate against, and disproportionately affect, the African American communities in the area. Information that construction of hazardous facilities by Wolverine and Petroplex International has been blocked by the St James Parish’s Council in the Third District, with a majority Anglo/White population, is a sign of such discriminatory practices and is therefore of serious concern.

These evictions are planned without the provision of any alternative adequate housing and would render many affected persons homeless, thus threatening their health and right to a life in dignity. Additional 2,000 families living in other informal settlements in Kathmandu may also be targeted for evictions in the future. This would be the second time that residents of Thapathali informal settlement would be subjected to forced evictions, after their homes were initially demolished in 2012.

The eviction orders have been issued in the context of the Government’s climate change mitigation action without the provision of alternative accommodation and productive land, nor adequate compensation. Allegedly, the national strategy to address the adverse effects of climate change pursues “false solutions” that are resulting in practice in the criminalization and impoverishment of poor small-scale farmers who depend on forests for their livelihoods, while the need to reform the energy sector is neglected.

Información recibida en relación con la crisis humanitaria y ambiental que padece el pueblo Raizal de las islas de Vieja Providencia y Santa Catalina, pertenecientes al Archipiélago de San Andrés, Providencia y Santa Catalina, tras el paso de los huracanes Eta e Iota en noviembre de 2020. Casi dos años después del paso y daños causados por los huracanes, la población de la isla de 5000 personas, de la cual 4500 indígenas Raizales, sigue necesitando urgentemente ayuda para el restablecimiento de todas sus necesidades básicas afectadas, como: alojamiento, atención sanitaria, agua, saneamiento y alimentos. Los esfuerzos de reconstrucción del Gobierno, se están llevando a cabo sin tomar en cuenta las aspiraciones y las recomendaciones del pueblo raizal y de sus autoridades, ignorando su forma de vida y sus costumbres, así como el clima de las islas. Debido a la insuficiente adecuación de las nuevas viviendas a las condiciones climáticas de las islas, la situación queda crítica y conlleva el riesgo que las personas interesadas se desplacen de nuevo y se queden sin hogar cuando golpee el próximo huracán. Además, la prioridad acordada a las necesidades militares y de desarrollo económico sobre la satisfacción de las necesidades inmediatas de la población en términos de vivienda, alimentos, agua potable y saneamiento, y un medio ambiente limpio, significa una presión importante sobre el espacio vital de los Raizales que afecta negativamente su autodeterminación, sus derechos culturales y su derecho al desarrollo, con graves repercusiones sobre su sobrevivencia en tanto que pueblo.

Information concerning the redevelopment plan 3080+ which is expected to involve the large-scale demolition of houses and the eviction of tenants in multiple districts in Seoul and other suburban areas as part of the Government’s broader housing policies aimed at boosting housing supply. Many of these redevelopment plans appear to be implemented without sufficient consultation or meaningful participation of all affected residents living in these areas, including in the design and implementation of these plans. In addition, the redevelopment projects appear not to include sufficient protection of marginalized community members living in the affected areas, and to ensure inadequate protection of the historic built environment, the culture, and the social networks of affected communities. If these redevelopment plans were to be implemented unchanged, there is the risk that several of the affected persons will be fully displaced with limited opportunities to return to their earlier place of residency.

On 22 and 23 May 2022, the Beer Sheva Magistrates’ Court held hearings in the case.

We are alarmed by reports that systemic racial discrimination and racist violence against migrants, refugees and asylum seekers have been exacerbated in recent years, with this regression accelerated by the public and private response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Information received concerning plans for resettlement, forced evictions, home demolitions and additional restrictions to livelihood, which are due to affect by 2027 some 82,000 residents of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, including indigenous Maasai pastoralists. Such plans have allegedly not been consulted with the Maasai people with a view to obtaining their free, prior and informed consent and would jeopardize their physical and cultural survival in the name of “nature conservation”, ignoring the close relationship that the Maasai have traditionally had with their territories, their stewardship role and the root causes of the current threats to the healthy environment of these territories.

Information received concerning ongoing forced evictions and home demolitions affecting the residents living in the informal settlements of Hlaing Thar Yar, in the Yangon region, which are reportedly carried out with a disproportionate use of force and have so far left 8,000 families homeless, without any compensation for the losses suffered, in a context marked by the continued application of the martial law to the area affected. We would also like to bring your attention that the such forced evictions and home demolitions take place in midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, thus further elevating the risk to health and life of the persons concerned. Further evictions are being undertaken, twice per week, in other informal settlements of Hlaing Thar Yar Township, with preparations underway in other townships.

Information received concerning ongoing forced evictions and demolitions of as many as 12,000 homes, affecting up to 96,000 people, mostly along two of Karachi’s nullahs (watercourses) - Gujjar and Orangi nullah, carried out in an intransparent manner without any consultations with the affected populations, with little to no notice to the affected residents, with no regard for different degrees of tenure they may hold, and with disparate provisions for redress and compensation. Despite recent stop orders issued by the High Court of Sindh, demolitions continued to take place, including of buildings the owners of which hold valid land leases. Following a Supreme Court of 14 June 2021 dismissing earlier interim stay, injunction and status quo orders, there are reports that demolitions are again underway in Gujjar and Orangi nullahs.These ongoing actions are resulting in irreversible forced displacement of large populations of people, putting them at risk of extreme poverty, homelessness and threatening public health during the global Covid-19 pandemic.

Information received concerning policies to deport undocumented Haitian migrants and to eradicate informal settlements known as “shanty towns” inhabited primarily by persons of Haitian origin or descent without any consultations or alternative accommodation provided to the affected minority and migrant communities. These policies have not taken into account the extreme vulnerability of the Haitian communities in the wake of category 5 Hurricane Dorian, which hit the Bahamas in September 2019, as a result of which many lost their lives, possessions, savings, personal documentation and jobs. Undocumented Haitian migrants are being deported in violation of the principle of non-refoulement, without individual assessments and due process guarantees, while informal settlements are being targeted for destruction without any consultation with their residents or the provision of adequate alternative housing. In April 2021, the authorities started an operation aiming to demolish around 600 newly-reconstructed homes in two adjacent informal settlements known as the Farm and the Farm Road on Abaco island, which will displace up to 2,000 persons (approx. 600 families), many of them women and children.

Information received concerning a registration and verification exercise in Al-Hol and Roj camps located in North-East Syria where your nationals, primarily women and children, are currently deprived of their liberty. In these makeshift locked camps made up of unstable tent-like structures which collapse in strong winds or flood with rain or sewage, hygiene is almost non-existent: limited drinking water is often contaminated, latrines are overflowing, mounds of garbage litter the grounds, and illnesses including viral infections are rampant. Food, water, health care and essential non-food supplies are provided by under-resourced humanitarian groups and organisations. According to the Kurdish Red Crescent, at least 517 people, 371 of them children, died in 2019, many from preventable diseases, in Al-Hol camp alone. In August 2020, eight children under the age of five died in that camp in less than a week, with four caused by malnutrition-related complications and the others were due to dehydration from diarrhoea, heart failure, internal bleeding and hypoglycaemia, according to UNICEF. Covid-19 has increased these difficulties, with a reduction in the number of workers operating in the camp.

Information received concerning a registration and verification exercise in Al-Hol and Roj camps located in North-East Syria where your nationals, primarily women and children, are currently deprived of their liberty. In these makeshift locked camps made up of unstable tent-like structures which collapse in strong winds or flood with rain or sewage, hygiene is almost non-existent: limited drinking water is often contaminated, latrines are overflowing, mounds of garbage litter the grounds, and illnesses including viral infections are rampant. Food, water, health care and essential non-food supplies are provided by under-resourced humanitarian groups and organisations. According to the Kurdish Red Crescent, at least 517 people, 371 of them children, died in 2019, many from preventable diseases, in Al-Hol camp alone. In August 2020, eight children under the age of five died in that camp in less than a week, with four caused by malnutrition-related complications and the others were due to dehydration from diarrhoea, heart failure, internal bleeding and hypoglycaemia, according to UNICEF. Covid-19 has increased these difficulties, with a reduction in the number of workers operating in the camp.

Informations reçues concernant une opération d'enregistrement et de vérification dans les camps d'Al-Hol et de Roj situés dans le nord-est de la Syrie où vos ressortissants, principalement des femmes et des enfants, sont actuellement privés de liberté. Dans ces camps de fortune fermés, constitués de structures vétustes qui s'effondrent sous l'effet de vents violents ou qui sont inondées par la pluie ou les eaux usées, les conditions sanitaires sont déplorables: l'eau potable est souvent contaminée, les latrines débordent, des monticules d'ordures jonchent le sol, et les maladies, y compris les infections virales, y sévissent. La nourriture, l'eau, les soins de santé et les produits non alimentaires essentiels sont fournis par des groupes et des organisations humanitaires aux ressources insuffisantes. Selon le Croissant rouge kurde, au moins 517 personnes, dont 371 enfants, seraient mortes en 2019, dont beaucoup de maladies évitables, rien que dans le camp d'Al-Hol. En août 2020, selon UNICEF, huit enfants de moins de cinq ans sont morts dans ce camp en moins d'une semaine, dont quatre à cause de complications liées à la malnutrition et les autres à cause d'une déshydratation due à la diarrhée, à une insuffisance cardiaque, à une hémorragie interne et à une hypoglycémie. Le Covid-19 a accru ces difficultés, en réduisant le nombre d’employés opérant dans le camp.

Covid-19 has increased these difficulties, with a reduction in the number of workers operating in the camp.

Informations reçues concernant une opération d'enregistrement et de vérification dans les camps d'Al-Hol et de Roj situés dans le nord-est de la Syrie où vos ressortissants, principalement des femmes et des enfants, sont actuellement privés de liberté. Dans ces camps de fortune fermés, constitués de structures vétustes qui s'effondrent sous l'effet de vents violents ou qui sont inondées par la pluie ou les eaux usées, les conditions sanitaires sont déplorables: l'eau potable est souvent contaminée, les latrines débordent, des monticules d'ordures jonchent le sol, et les maladies, y compris les infections virales, y sévissent. La nourriture, l'eau, les soins de santé et les produits non alimentaires essentiels sont fournis par des groupes et des organisations humanitaires aux ressources insuffisantes. Selon le Croissant rouge kurde, au moins 517 personnes, dont 371 enfants, seraient mortes en 2019, dont beaucoup de maladies évitables, rien que dans le camp d'Al-Hol. En août 2020, selon UNICEF, huit enfants de moins de cinq ans sont morts dans ce camp en moins d'une semaine, dont quatre à cause de complications liées à la malnutrition et les autres à cause d'une déshydratation due à la diarrhée, à une insuffisance cardiaque, à une hémorragie interne et à une hypoglycémie. Le Covid-19 a accru ces difficultés, en réduisant le nombre d’employés opérant dans le camp.

According to the Kurdish Red Crescent, at least 517 people, 371 of them children, died in 2019, many from preventable diseases, in Al-Hol camp alone. In August 2020, eight children under the age of five died in that camp in less than a week, with four caused by malnutrition-related complications and the others were due to dehydration from diarrhoea, heart failure, internal bleeding and hypoglycaemia, according to UNICEF. Covid-19 has increased these difficulties, with a reduction in the number of workers operating in the camp.
