Human Rights Review for TL coming up

Every four years, the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva conducts a process called Universal Periodic Review (UPR) on the human rights situation in every country. Timor-Leste is currently undergoing this process for the first time, and La'o Hamutuk has posted a web page with key information and documents from this process.

Following the presentation of information and submissions from several sources during 2011, a HRC Working Group reviewed Timor-Leste on 12 October 2011. The members gave many suggestions to Timor-Leste's Government, which will be discussed and adopted in a Council plenary meeting on 16 March 2012, as described on this Fact Sheet (also Tetum) from UNMIT and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).
