Manila, 23 May 2017 – The Universal Period Review (UPR) of Indonesia took place on May 3, 2017, in Palais de Nations, in Geneva.
The review process was led by three member States of the UN Human Rights Council, namely Bangladesh, Belgium, and Ecuador.
As this year’s International Week of the Disappeared begins, we call upon the Philippine Government to end enforced disappearances and bring to justice all perpetrators of this grave human rights violation.
The Phruetsapha Thamin, or Black May, refers to the protest that erupted in Bangkok in 1992 against the government of General Suchinda Kraprayoon, and to the military crackdown that followed. At the height of the protest, between 17-20 May 1992, 200,000 people demonstrated in central Bangkok.
