​First civil right report to be submitted

The Department of Justice and Attorney General has taken the lead to prepare the report, which is expected to be submitted to the United Nations Human Rights by the end of 2017.

The Government has committed to setting up a strict coordination mechanism called the ‘National Mechanism for Reporting and Follow up’ to help prepare reports on the six rectified human rights conventions.

PNG rectified the ICCPR in 2008 and is the process of establishing that structure through the leadership of the justice department.
