Thirteen NGOs Criticize Dutch Human Rights Policy

In a report recently released by 13 NGOs at the request of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, it transpires that The Netherlands itself does not abide by international agreements on human rights. The NGOs say that although the Netherlands ascribes to itself a leading role regarding human rights in the world, it is not practicing what it preaches on a national level. For example, The Netherlands is against establishing a national institute for human rights.
