Peru’s NGO Bill Threatens Human Rights – HRW

HRW, 8 January 2007.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has criticised  a Bill in Peru’s Congress that paves the way for the government to interfere with the activities of NGOs.

In a letter sent to President Alan García, the organisation says the  Bill, which is under intense debate in Congress after CSOs, the press and religious institutions expressed strong opposition to its terms, will undermine human rights protections in that country.

This was a challenging era in South Africa’s history where there was widespread political resurgence in communities that responded violently to the harsh and rigid enforcement of apartheid laws, which at one stage included the incarceration of 3,500 children.
