要求港府交人權報告、呼籲聯合國審議香港狀況 Demand HK Gov submit HR report, urge UN to review HK's situation
 
限期港府提交遲交的人權報告,促請聯合國及時審議香港人權倒退狀況
 
《公民權利和政治權利國際公約》(下稱《公約》)訂明各締約國均有責任採取一切適當措施,以保障人類基本的政治和公民權利。《公約》於1976年生效後,亦擴展至適用於香港。而《中英聯合聲明》和《基本法》均訂明,《公約》適用於香港的規定繼續有效。故此,香港政府有責任定期向聯合國人權事務委員會提交報告,交代香港的人權狀況。
 
港府本應在2018年3月30日提交第四份報告。可惜,至今港府都沒有按聯合國的要求提交,以致聯合國人權事務委員會無法安排召開會議,聆訊和審議香港報告,監察香港如何落實上述公約保障的公民和政治權利。我們強烈質疑和抗議香港政府不按規定準時提交報告,以此迴避聯合國對香港人權狀況的監察。
 
由於政府就草擬報告的公眾諮詢早在21個月前結束,我們相信政府絕對有能力在這21個月內按規定擬好文件。因此,我們嚴正呼籲香港政府在2019年9月28日前向聯合國提交第四份報告,交代近年香港的人權狀況。這些狀況,應該包括示威、集會、遊行和政治參與權利受到打壓;民選議員被取消議員資格、候選人被剝奪參選資格;新聞及言論自由受壓制;當局攝錄監控市民侵犯個人私隱;警務人員施行酷刑、暴力、濫權和侵犯婦女老弱,其中包括性侵犯;執法因政見不同而有嚴重不公;警方更縱容惡勢力無差別毆打市民;被捕人士在保障人身安全、獲得適當醫療和法律諮詢等各方面的權利備受侵犯,並受到政治檢控等等。
 
如果政府在此日期前無法向聯合國提交報告,我們將會強烈呼籲聯合國人權事務委員會對香港啟動無報告下聆訊審議的程序,迫使港府在香港事態進一步惡化成人道災難之前,盡早正視一切倒退中的人權問題,尋求解決之道,煞止香港目前全面的人權倒退,有效保障香港的法治和其他公民和政治權利,回復以往基於普世價值的和平,光復香港。

Hong Kong Government yet to submit its human rights report submission 
We urge the United Nations look into the decline of human rights in the city
 
Signatories to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights have the responsibility to take all measures to ensure the protection of basic civil and political rights. After the covenant came into effect in 1976 it was extended to Hong Kong. The Sino-British Joint Declaration and the Basic Law state the covenant is applicable to Hong Kong and continues to take effect. As a result, the HKSAR government has the responsibility to submit reports to the United Nations Human Rights Committee on the condition of human rights in Hong Kong.
 
The Hong Kong government was supposed to submit the 4th report on March 30th 2018. However, up till now the Hong Kong government has not adhered to the demands of the United Nations and this has led to the Human Rights Committee members being unable to proceed with a meeting to discuss and evaluate the Hong Kong report and monitor whether Hong Kong’s civil and political rights are being protected. Civil Human Rights Front strongly objects to the late submission of the Hong Kong report and condemns the government for avoiding the United Nations’ monitoring of the human rights conditions in Hong Kong.
 
The public consultation on the report was completed over 21 months ago, and we strongly believe the government should have had enough time to complete its 4th report and update the committee on the latest human rights condition in Hong Kong before 28th September. The report should include details about the demonstrations, assemblies, marches, the suppression of rights, elected legislators being ousted, right to participate by electoral candidates stripped, the press freedom and freedom of expression being suppressed, citizens being under surveillance and having their privacy encroached upon, the police officers torturing suspects and violently or sexually assaulting women and the elderly, the execution of the law being unfair, the police allowing triads to use violence against its citizens, the arrested citizens being fearful of their personal safety, the right to medical care and legal advice being stripped and being subject to political prosecution. 
 
If the government continues to delay its submission of the report, then the Civil Human Rights Front strongly recommends the United Nations Human Rights Committee conduct a hearing without the report being submitted, and force the Hong Kong government to face up to the reality that the human rights situation in Hong Kong has been in decline and is on the verge of a humanitarian crisis. The conditions should be faced head on to ensure that Hong Kong’s rule of law and the civil and political rights would continue to be enjoyed by everyone.
