In December 2006, the United Nations adopted a major new human rights treaty, the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance aimed at preventing and punishing ‘enforced disappearance’ – the kidnap and murder of political opponents by governments.
73 countries have signed the convention, 4 have ratified it. 20 ratifications are needed for the Convention to come into force.
New Zealand supported the Convention process didn’t sign it. You can help change this by joining No Right Turn‘s petition. Download the petition, collect as many signatures as you can, and post it back.
