Report submitted by the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on the situation of human rights defenders, Hina Jilani

A/HRC/7/28/Add.1

The present document is submitted by the Special Representative of the Secretary General on the situation of human rights defenders, Ms Hina Jilani, to the Human Rights Council pursuant to resolution 2003/64 of the Commission on Human Rights and resolution 5/1 of the Human rights Council. The document provides summaries of the communications on specific cases addressed by the Special Representative to Governments, as well as summaries of the replies by Governments that she has received and her observations thereon. 2. The cases raised by the Special Representative in this addendum include communications sent from 2 December 2006 to 10 December 2007. The addendum contains summaries of responses received from Governments until 10 February 2008. Although received before 10 February 2008, few replies are not included in the present report because translation is awaited. Most of the responses by Governments refer to cases raised by the Special Representative during the period December 2006 to December 2007; however, some of the responses are to cases addressed by her in earlier reporting periods. While the summaries of these responses are included in this report, the summaries of the cases to which they refer will be found in the Special Representative’s reports from preceding years (see A/HRC/4/37/Add.1, E/CN.4/2006/95/Add.1, and E/CN.4/2005/101/Add.1, covering the previous three years).
