A resolution urging the regime of the Castro brothers to ratify the International Covenants on Human Rights and to cooperate with the workings of the United Nations, was passed in the 38th Congress of the International Federation of Human Rights, which concluded on Monday 27 May in Istanbul (Turkey).
The resolution, proposed by the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation (CCDHRN) and titled “With regards to the situation of civil and political rights in Cuba,” asks Havana to ratify the Covenants on Civil and Political Rights and Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which it signed, as also demanded from Havana by the Campaign For Another Cuba.
The document also calls for the abolition of the death penalty on the island.
The Congress was attended by more than 200 organizations from 130 countries.
