  • Kjernen i Magnitskij-saken

    Dokumentarfilmen "The Magnitski Act":

    Kjernen i Magnitskij-saken

    I en artikkel 25. mai skriver Dagbladet at «den amerikanske milliardæren» William Browder vil stanse en film av den anerkjente filmregissøren Andrei Nekrasov om Magnitskij-saken. Dagbladets artikkel etterlater et inntrykk av at vi kanskje alle har tatt feil av saken. Men det er ikke tilfelle. Sergej Magnitskij var en russisk varsler som ble torturert og drept i regi av russiske tjenestemenn. Han hadde varslet om at de samme tjenestemennene hadde orkestrert en omfattende skattesvindel av den russiske staten ved å stjele og bruke Browders investeringsselskaper.

  • Fighting for accountability and democratic change in Ukraine

    New Report and Seminar:

    Fighting for accountability and democratic change in Ukraine

    Even though the military conflict in Ukraine is not making big headlines, it is still ongoing. Soldiers and civilians continue to die and the Minsk agreement is broken constantly. With over 10 000 deaths, and close to 2 million of IDPs, and many alleged crimes unaccounted for, the issue of accountability is high on the Ukrainian and international agenda - including on the panel debate organised by the Norwegian Helsinki Committee on 9 June where also the new report "Where did the shells come from: Investigation of cross-border attacks in Eastern Ukraine" was presented for the first time.

NHC, as a Sport for Rights coalition member, condemns this renewed crackdown, and and joins the call on the Azerbaijani authorities to take immediate steps to improve the human rights situation in the country, starting with the release of political prisoners.

  • Widespread Human Rights Abuse amid Attempts to Hold Peaceful Protests

    Kazakhstan:

    Widespread Human Rights Abuse amid Attempts to Hold Peaceful Protests

    The newly formed Coalition for the Right to Peaceful Assembly in Kazakhstan have documented sweeping government interference with the rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression in the run-up to, and during, planned peaceful protests on 21 May. The Coalition also documented violations of the right to legal counsel in a series of cases. All findings, along with recommendations are published in a preliminary report by the coalition. “Arresting activists and social media users for expressing their intention to participate in peaceful protests as outlined in this thorough report is a clear violation of Kazakhstan’s international obligations and must be addressed accordingly, said Bjørn Engesland, Secretary General of the Norwegian Helsinki Committee.

  • Political prisoner Ilgar Mammadov celebrates his 46th birthday in jail.

    Happy birthday Ilgar:

    Political prisoner Ilgar Mammadov celebrates his 46th birthday in jail.

    Today, the opposition leader Ilgar Mammadov spends his 46th birthday in one of the vile prisons in Azerbaijan, prisons which have a history of housing dissidents. In May 2014, the European Court of Human Rights concluded, in a strongly worded judgment, that the actual purpose of Mammadov’s detention “was to silence or punish Mammadov for criticizing the government.” Citing that ruling, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has called repeatedly for Mammadov’s release. Yet the government, which controls the courts, the parliament and the media, remains deaf to the calls.
