High Commissioner’s commentary on written comments of Council of Europe Human Rights Commissioner

High Commissioner’s commentary on written comments of Council of Europe Human Rights Commissioner

11 December 2017

I carefully read the written comments of the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, submitted to the European Court of Human Rights and published on a group of cases in which the so-called «law on foreign agents» is disputed. Similar laws are being adopted in other countries, as evidenced in the analytical review «Regulation of political activities of non-governmental organizations (NGOs)», sent to me by President of the Conference of International Non-Governmental Organizations of the Council of Europe Anna Rurka. Despite the fact that one of the areas of his mandate the Commissioner calls identifying possible shortcomings in legislation and in practice in the field of human rights, his comments do not reflect the objective situation.
