Australia in danger of understating serious human rights violations in India

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade releases Country Information Reports primarily for the use of protection status determination, and provides a ‘general’ country overview.

Amnesty International is concerned that the newly published Country Information Report for India does not reflect the reality of the human rights situation on the ground. In particular, threats to human rights and ongoing violations of human rights are frequently understated in the report.

Amnesty International has written to the Department to outline its concerns.
