High Commissioner spoke at international forum in Bishkek

On September 6, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova spoke at the international forum of Ombudspersons on "The Commissioner’s Role in the Improvement of Legal Acts in the Field of Human Rights: Expectations and Prospects" in Bishkek.

State Human Rights defenders from 11 countries, including Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Iran, Turkey, Moldova, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, Austria, Lithuania, Kazakhstan, as well as representatives of international organizations took part in the event: the chairperson of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, the General Secretary of International Ombudsman Institute and others.

Tatiana Moskalkova told the participants of the conference about the experience of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation in legislation improving in the field of human and civil rights. The High Commissioner noted that Russia has a sufficient legal framework that meets the high standards of human and civil rights and freedoms enshrined in the International Covenants on Civil and Political Rights and on Social, Economic and Cultural Rights. However, today, we should focus on the issue of release of seriously ill citizens from serving their sentences and transferring prisoners closer to the residence place of their relatives.

In addition, at present the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, together with the Federation Council, is working on a draft law on the basic principles and activities organization of Commissioners for Human Rights in the constituent territories of the Russian Federation.

Tatiana Moskalkova suggested publishing a compendium of legal acts where Ombudspersons could share their best practices and also talk about the principles, mechanisms and tools that are used by Commissioners for Human Rights.

"We also need to consider creating a joint electronic information and legal base for Ombudspersons, where we can exchange information and publish laws and law enforcement practice in the field of human rights protection," the High Commissioner added.
