UPR QUESTION RE 1973 DECREE

In about two hours (3PM Mbabane time), Swaziland will be answering questions about its human rights record before the Human Rights Council. The advance questions are now available (HERE).

Norway is asking the following question about the 1973 Decree:

· What steps are taken to strengthen and ensure the freedom of assembly and association in Swaziland? What steps will be taken to ensure that a space for plurality of opinion and political groups is created and maintained? What steps are being taken to repeal the 1973 Royal decree?

The answer can be watched live here:
