Amnesty International ‘s annual report on the state of human rights in 157 countries, criticises Denmark on several issues and calls for a global deal for human rights.

In its Denmark report, Amnesty questions the Danish government’s attempt to expel foreign nationals on the basis of ‘diplomatic guarantees’ from countries in which those in question would be in danger of torture.

“States such as Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, were prepared to allow unenforceable “diplomatic assurances” as a justification to deport terrorism suspects to countries where there was a real risk of torture and other ill-treatment,” Amnesty says.

In particular Amnesty points to the forced repatriation of Iraqis as well as the so-called ‘Tunisian case’ in which those involved have faced an uncertain future if they were returned to their country of origin.

Obligations
The report calls on Denmark to make greater efforts to abide by and restore its respect for human rights.

“The serious violations of human rights and the killing of civilians in Iraq, Gaza, Sri Lanka and Pakistan have caused hundreds of thousands to flee. But it appears that the most important thing for the Danish government is to close its borders to refugees, forcibly repatriate 282 Iraqi asylum seekers to an insecure future and expel terrorism suspects to countries that use torture – without giving them a fair trial,” says Amnesty International Denmark Secretary-General Lars Normann Jørgensen.

Residency
The Amnesty report also addresses the issue of tolerated residency in Denmark, under which those who cannot be deported must live in an asylum centre and report to police each day.

“This includes people whose return to their country of origin has been ruled to be unsafe by the Refugee Appeals Board. In November there were believed to be 18 people with a “tolerated residency” status,” Amnesty says adding that at least 11 Iraqis were forcibly returned to Iraq, contrary to the recommendations of the United Nations Hich Commission for Refugees.

“Some asylum-seekers who had been subjected to torture or other ill-treatment did not receive adequate medical treatment in Denmark,” Amnesty says.

Police
The report also points to the Danish system of complaints about the police, suggesting it is inadequate.

“The system for resolving complaints against the police failed to ensure an effective remedy for allegations of ill-treatment. Very few complaints – between five and eight out of every 1,000 – were upheld by regional public prosecutors, and even fewer resulted in criminal charges being brought against the police,” the report says.

Rape
It also said that there was a lack of legal protection and redress for survivors of rape.

“Only one in five rapes reported to the police resulted in a conviction. Sixty per cent of cases where charges were brought did not reach court due to lack of evidence,” the Annual Report added.

Global issues
At the global level, Amnesty says that the world is in the middle of a human rights crisis.

“We are sitting on a social, political and economic time-bomb that will explode if human rights concerns are not addressed. Billions of people are suffering from insecurity, injustice and indignity around the world and while many aspects of this crisis pre-date the economic ‘downturn’, it is clear that the global financial situation is making the human rights crisis far worse,” Amnesty says.

It says that in the Middle East and North Africa, the financial crisis and rising food prices have affected those who are already in poverty and that in Europe, the gap between rich and poor remains ‘vast’.

“In Latin America and the Caribbean - where more than 70 million people are living on less than US$1 a day - poverty, inequality and discrimination have increased the numbers of Indigenous People denied their rights to health care, education, clean water and adequate housing,” Amnesty says.

Global deal
It adds that a coordinated global response is needed based on human rights and the Rule of Law.

“World leaders must invest in human rights as purposefully as it invests in economic growth. It is incumbent on those sitting at the world’s table to set an example through their own behaviour. And it is incumbent on us, as citizens, as rights holders, to bring pressure to bear on our political leaders,” the human rights organisation says.

No, we are in the middle of a crisis of non-white breeding.

Global deal

No, a response is needed on the basis of White rights and the Rule of Germanic Racial Preservation.

Good news then:D Because we all know that if Amnesty Int. critizes you, then you must be doing something right.

LOL. Yeah, why not bring those terrorist suspects here instead and not have them stand trial or anything, just let them lose in our societies, that's the only responsible thing to do. What about our own citizens who are at a very real risk of torture and other ill-treatment from these people? These amnesty people are prepared to throw their own people under the bus to save criminals and deviants from all corners of the world. I guess if their own daughter gets gang raped they'll blame it on racism in our society and forgive the poor immigrants.

This quote is important:

In Latin America and the Caribbean - where more than 70 million people are living on less than US$1 a day - poverty, inequality and discrimination have increased the numbers of Indigenous People denied their rights to health care, education, clean water and adequate housing,” Amnesty says.

As soon as the word in bold is said, it automatically links all of the aforementioned injustice to White people. Even though those injustices are committed by non-whites and taking place in countries ruled by non-Whites, it makes no difference. The result is that we will get the blame regardless of wherever and whoever commits the crimes. The world has been programmed to associate that word with us. Even if the reader isn't consciously aware of it, sub-consciously they will identify the two; White man is the cause of all suffering.

And such is the marriage of Marxism with Freudianism.

Pardon my French, but fuck Amnesty International. In Austria, they said that the FPÖ's campaign is "xenophobic, homophobic and anti-Semitic and thus against Human Rights", but of course not condemning statements by the leader of the IKG (Israelistische Kultusgemeinde) that the FPÖ's secretary, Herbert Kickl, sounded like Goebbels.

Yes, the same Amnesty International that approach you in the street. The same AI that when they talked about Human Rights had nothing to offer when I asked them to start with their ideological comrades in China, where child labour is still commonplace.

The same AI that only caught onto the China issue when the Tibet issue came about, which is supposedly an "honorable cause" (even though the founder of the Austrian Holocaust Memorial Foundation, whom I have known since childhood [different matter, I know him through different means, but he is sound enough to always be 'up for a debate' which is good.] had confided in me that the Dalai Lama is a 'false, manipulative one') , but still don't do anything about child labour there since it's communists there.

The same AI that care about violence against women in white societies but don't care about violence against women in Islamic Societies.

Seriously, with all the double standards of Amnesty International, I have stopped to believe in anything they say, as TBH they don't care a single bit about Human Rights, essentially they are just one of the political extensions of those that seek to destroy European and especially Germanic culture and patriotism.

Human Rights, such as Freedom of Religion, Fredom of Speech, Freedom of Privacy - these are all things worth fighting for. But never under the banner of this ideologically-driven organisation which spouts nothing but Neo-Marxist venom wherever it goes. :|

How an organisation for Human Rights can demand for a fair trial against people, who bomb civilians to cripples (where is my human right of undamaged body here?), I'll never understand.

Denmark, keep your borders CLOSED!!! :thumbup

I couldn't agree more with you on this. An interesting parallel, though slightly off-topic, is the well known assumption that Whites are solely responsible for slavery in the world. This is a particularly touchy topic in the USA, where many choose to conveniently gloss over the fact that many societies in the world have practiced slavery of some form throughout history. Interestingly, the cultures in Africa, the Middle East and Asia have championed the use of slavery in proportions far greater than any European or North American culture. The slave trade to North America from Africa was partially the taking of slaves, but a large majority were African tribes SELLING/TRADING off rival tribes and/or local undesirable people to slave traders. They were selling out their own people and now slave descendants blame us.

If one looks at the cultures today that still continue to support slavery, horrific examples are easily found in the Middle East and Asia. Furthermore, the modern slave trade of White people from Eastern Europe to the Middle East and Asia is appalling and disgusting - and no one, including AI, is doing a thing about it.

Tying this to AI's criticism of Denmark, the people being "discriminated" against in countries like Denmark are the same who bring over distant relatives or "relatives" (non-relatives who are gifts or debt payments) to work as servants for them in their host countries. They seek asylum in our countries and bring their customs, which are incompatible with ours. When we try to send some back to their countries, we "violate human rights." It seems that AI should instead focus its resources and pressure on these Middle Eastern and Asian countries, and stop wagging its fingers at society that is open and is free.

The Amnesty report also addresses the issue of tolerated residency in Denmark, under which those who cannot be deported must live in an asylum centre and report to police each day.

...

“Some asylum-seekers who had been subjected to torture or other ill-treatment did not receive adequate medical treatment in Denmark,” Amnesty says.


I don't believe it is the duty of Denmark to provide medical treatment to nationals of foreign countries with whom they do not have a reciprocal agreement.


It also said that there was a lack of legal protection and redress for survivors of rape.

“Only one in five rapes reported to the police resulted in a conviction. Sixty per cent of cases where charges were brought did not reach court due to lack of evidence,” the Annual Report added.

Quite ironic, given that statistics show that non-Europeans are responsible for committing a large proportion of the rapes in European countries.

Amnesty International is a farcical charade that emulates the United Nations.

Both are impotent phalluses of liberalism.

Just this week the United Nations announced New Zealand as the Worlds most peaceful nation.

Two weeks ago Amnesty International were on our case for violating the treatment of criminals because the NZ Police Force offically introduced Tasers as a front line weapon.

This just a few days before 3 Police and a civillian were shot by yet another sooty drug dealer.

The NZ Police do not carry guns on their person. They are only carried when required under duress and threat. How the hell can Amnesty International complain about that procedure? And the use of Tasers in front line policing further limits the use of firearms. How is that a bad thing?

As for the United Nations. Could it be have anymore of a liberalist socialist agenda? The only time the U.N. took a firm stand was in the "white" war in the former Yugoslavia to protect the Muslims.

I have served in a peace-keeping mission as part of a U.N. mission in Africa, and the orders are very clear there. Let them kill each other, do not engage, just dig the graves.
