APEC Safety and Security Act 2018

CBC’s stance on amended APEC security act

This is the stance taken by the Catholic Bishops Conference regarding the amended APEC Safety and Security Act 2018.

The Catholic Bishops Conference says over the years, there have been a number of special operations and in all of those operations, there have been concerns about the infringement of basic human rights, as set out in the Constitution of Papua New Guinea.

“Section 38 of the Constitution acknowledges that there can be restrictions to basic rights and freedoms,” says CBC.
