On 28 February meeting in Geneva on topic crucial to human rights defenders: funding restrictions

February 27, 2013

On Thursday 28 February OMCT-LOGOOMCT and FIDH organise a meeting in room XXI in the Palais des Nations of the UN (starts 13h00) on the topic: ‘RESTRICTIONS ON NGO FUNDING: FROM HARASSMENT TO CRIMINALISATION“. Many of my recent posts have dealt with this increasing phenomenon which is simply the more sophisticated way of Governments repressing the voices of human rights defenders, activists and dissidents.

The programme looks as follows:

Introductory remarks
Ms. Kyung-wha Kang, Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights

H.E. Mr. Colin Wrafter, Director, Human Rights Unit, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ireland

Chair Antoine Bernard, FIDH CEO

Panel speakers:

Gerald Staberock, OMCT Secretary General

Olga Sadovskaya, CAT –member of the OMCT GA– (Russia)

Farida Makar, CIHRS (Egypt)

Adil Rahman Khan, ODHIKAR –member of the OMCT GA- (Bangladesh)

Entrance is free and public but one should get access to the UN building.
