UN HUMAN RIGHTS TO DESIGNATE A GROUP OF INSPECTOR TO OBSERVE THE MIGRATION’S SITUATION IN ITALY AND AUSTRIA




Mustafa AY – TDO – 11.09.2018 On Monday, Michelle Bachelet -UN High Commissioner for Human Rights- announced designation of a group of inspector to monitor and observe treatments which Italian and Austrian administration’s exhibited towards asylum-seekers so far. Bachelet stated that she will commission the inspectors for the purpose of revealing whether or not the asylum-seeker’s confronted with deprivation of their own imprescriptible human rights by both government officials and citizens of the countries. The rationale why Bachelet issued this order could be attributable to both countries’ strict stance on the issue of migration. Following Bachelet’s announcement, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz asserted that he found UN High Commissioner’s decision an opportunity to refute all allegations of human rights violations that have been addressed against Austria.
