Informations reçues concernant les enfants de Mmes Priscilla Majani, Hanna Dam-Stokholm et Sophie Abida, qui ont été placés sous la garde de leurs pères respectifs par décision de justice, malgré des allégations crédibles d'abus sexuels et de violences incestueuses de leur part; et le traitement apparemment discriminatoire et les violences infligées à leurs mères, pour avoir tenté de protéger leurs enfants contre une telle prédation sexuelle. Nos inquiétudes sont renforcées par des rapports indiquant qu'il ne s'agit pas de cas isolés, mais qu'ils reflètent des préoccupations généralisées concernant le traitement des enfants et de leurs mères, au mépris des principes de précaution et de l'intérêt supérieur des enfants.

Les amendements concernent uniquement l'élection de l'Assemblée des représentants du peuple (ARP) et ne couvrent pas l'élection de l'Assemblée nationale des districts et des régions - la chambre supplémentaire introduite par la nouvelle Constitution - qui serait composée sur la base des résultats des élections régionales, régies par la loi électorale existante mais qui devrait être modifiée par un décret ultérieur.

Additionally, we would like to bring to your attention concerns related to the increase of sexual and gender-based violence against women in the conflict affected-areas, as the insecurity has increased since the military coup of 25 October 2021 in Sudan. We are concerned that these continuous violations, conducted with impunity, in addition to constituting serious human rights violations, also severely restrict the civic space and create a hostile environment for the participation in public affairs, especially for women and girls.

The Act, if passed by the Senate, would weaken regulations governing the approval, use and monitoring of pesticides in Brazil, exposing farmers, workers, indigenous peoples and peasant communities to hazardous substances. The draft bill would also allow the use of carcinogenic pesticides, as well as pesticides with a higher risk of reproductive and hormonal problems and malformations in babies. In addition, it would contravene the current measures and commitments your Excellency’s Government has taken to set out clear expectations of responsible business conduct, including respect for human rights.

Información recibida en relación con alegaciones acerca de la falta de inclusión efectiva de la población migrante en la respuesta del Gobierno de Colombia a la pandemia de COVID-19; el impacto desproporcionado de ésta sobre el acceso efectivo de esta población a los servicios de salud, incluyendo la salud sexual y reproductiva de las mujeres y adolescentes, vivienda, agua y saneamiento; así como de la posible discriminación que resultaría de la presunta exclusión de las personas migrantes que no tengan regularizada su situación migratoria, del programa de vacunación del Gobierno de Colombia.

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.

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.

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.
