BANGKOK, June 12 – Amnesty International (AI) has called on Thailand to press for Human Rights protection in Southeast Asia, abolish shackles among inmates and stop pushing Rohingya ethnic migrants from the kingdom. In a meeting with Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Tuesday, AI Secretary General Salil Shetty handed over the 2013 report on Human Rights situation to the Thai leader. Mr Shetty said Thailand should be a driving force in encouraging Southeast Asian countries to enhance Human Rights protection in addition to educating their peoples on the global practice. The non-government organisation expressed appreciation for Thailand’s decision to unshackle inmates and urged the Thai government to refrain from capital punishment to show the country’s respect for human dignity and value. Mr Shetty said Amnesty submitted an open letter to Deputy Prime Minister/Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul on Monday, seeking Human Rights protection for migrant workers and Rohingya refugees in Thai ...
Amnesty condemns abuse 'inaction' Amnesty International has accused governments of using state sovereignty as an "excuse" for failing to intervene in emergencies such as in Syria. In its annual report, the Human Rights group also blames world leaders for prioritising immigration control over the rights of people. The study documents torture in at least 112 countries. It also criticises the UN for what it describes as its lack of action over Human Rights abuses. Syria is one example where Amnesty says war crimes have been committed. "For nearly two years, the Syrian military and security forces have launched indiscriminate attacks and detained, tortured and killed people they perceived to support the rebels," said the group's international Secretary General, Salil Shetty. "Armed opposition groups have also carried out summary killings and torture albeit on a much smaller scale." The UN Security Council's failure to act was defended, particularly by Russia and China, as respecting the sovereignty of the sta ...

Military, police worsening Boko Haram insurgency:-Amnesty. Human Rights abuses including extra-judicial killings, rape and torture committed by security forces in their fight against Boko Haram are spurring the very uprising they are meant to contain, Amnesty International said in Abuja yesterday. In a report titled ‘Nigeria: Trapped in the cycle of violence’ released to journalists, the London-based rights group accused the Military and Police personnel of showing “little regard for the rule of law or Human Rights” in their operations. The 76-page report detailed how hundreds of people accused of having links with Boko Haram have been arbitrarily detained, and others who did not pose any threat summarily executed outside their homes. “Every injustice carried out in the name of security only fuels more terrorism, creating a vicious circle of murder and destruction,” said Amnesty’s Secretary General Salil Shetty while unveiling the report in Abuja yesterday. “You cannot protect people by ab ...
