CHRI Post of the Day

After more than a month of destroying 11,100 files, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), does not have a comprehensive list containing the details of all the files it destroyed in July. CHRI staff filed an application asking about the details of these files which has a elicited a catena of replies (attachment). The reply by the public information officer indicates that the procedure for properly identifying files for weeding out was not followed. This is opposite to the Act which states that all public authorities must index, catalogue, computerise and network the records they hold in custody. It is urged that this mandate be followed for actualizing transparency.

CHRI Posts of The Week

Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative along with Transparency Maldives organised the South Asia Regional Conference of RTI Advocates and Practitioners in Maldives during 27th – 28th August, 2014. The implementation experience in countries where the law has been enacted, i.e. Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh was showcased and contrasted. Countries that have recently passed their law i.e. the Maldives and Khyper Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan expressed their opportunities and challenges. Practical suggestions were forwarded for strengthening advocacy efforts in countries where there is no law i.e. Bhutan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Myanmar. Major findings from a study of the working of the Information Commissions in Bangladesh and India were presented. Representative of the Information Commissions from Nepal, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab, Pakistan presented their work including landmark decisions rendered. Identifying basic norms that must become the working of the Information Commissions being the main thrust.

CHRI 2013 REPORT to CHOGM

CHRI’s 2013 report to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), The Missing Link: A Commonwealth Commissioner for Human Rights, finds that the Commonwealth’s existing mechanisms to hold Members States to account over their human rights record are inadequate. The report calls for the Commonwealth to establish a Commissioner for Human Rights. Now more than ever before there is value in the appointment of a Commonwealth Commissioner for Human Rights, who will rebuild the confidence of its people and ensure a renewed, relevant and sustainable Commonwealth.

'Systemic reforms is the key to better policing' This new video by CHRI narrates the story of police reforms in India, describing how colonial-era laws continue to influence the functioning of the police as a force and not a service meant for the public. This video explains in about four minutes the  Supreme Court directives which provide pathways for meaningful reform, thus emphasising the point: "Systemic Reforms is the Key to Better Policing".
