 Council of Europe: Protect victims of people trafficking - Amnesty International   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The call comes as a drafting group of representatives of the 46 Council of Europe member states (known as the CAHTEH) are due to begin their last meeting in Strasbourg on 22 February to finalise the draft European Convention Against Trafficking in Human Beings.
Council of Europe member states must set a high standard when it comes to protecting trafficked peoples' rights - rather than settling for the lowest common denominator standards,” said Mary Cunneen, Director of Anti-Slavery International, which has been working to eradicate slavery for over 160 years.
This will require that most of the states agree to include provisions in the Council of Europe treaty which are more protective of the rights of trafficked persons than those set out in their national law or EU legislation.

The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe should use the opportunity of its session on 5-6 November 2003 in Chisinau/Moldova to address the human rights situation in the Chechen Republic in a manner demanded by the gravity of the abuses there.
The Parliamentary Assembly (PACE), in recommendation 1600 of 2 April 2003 to the Committee of Ministers, considered that so far the efforts by all actors involved have failed to improve the human rights situation and to ensure that past human rights violations, and particularly war crimes, are adequately prosecuted.
The Committee of Ministers has ignored this assessment, and has instead preferred to put all its stake on the so-called “political solution” of the conflict as designed by the Russian authorities.

 RIA Novosti - Russia - Russia protests CE Committee of Ministers' comments on Belarus
Andres Herkel, rapporteur on Belarus and Chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe's (PACE) Belarus subcommittee, said on April 13 that elections in the former Soviet republic should be held again, since the previous ballot, which ended with a landslide win for incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko, was problematic and opaque for observers.
It is particularly alarming that the decision on April 26 by the Council of Ministers broke the culture of consensus, ignoring the opinion of the side in disagreement with the majority," the statement said.
Lukashenko, dubbed "Europe's last dictator" by Washington, was re-elected for a third presidential term on March 19 with 83% of the vote.
