Draft Basic Principles and Guidelines on Remedies and Procedures on the Right of Anyone Deprived of His or Her Liberty by Arrest or Detention to Bring Proceedings Before Court

By resolution 20/16, the Human Rights Council has requested the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention to develop " Draft Basic Principles and Guidelines on Remedies and Procedures on the Right of Anyone Deprived of His or Her Liberty by Arrest or Detention to Bring Proceedings Before Court" . The draft basic principles and guidelines are to be presented to the Human Rights Council in September 2015.

In preparation for these principles and guidelines, the Working Group is undertaking a thematic study on this right of all persons to seek review of their detention and sent a questionnaire to Member States and other stakeholders, including human rights treaty bodies and other special procedures mandate holders, national human rights institutions and non-governmental organizations, to seek information on national and regional laws and regulations on this right:

The Working Group will also convene a two-day stakeholder consultation in September 2014 to present the first draft of the basic principles and guidelines to stakeholders to seek their input.
