Human Rights Council begins interactive dialogue on use of mercenaries and on hazardous wastes

Presenting his report, Gabor Rona, Chairperson-Rapporteur of the Working Group on the use of mercenaries as a means of violating human rights and impeding the exercise of the right of peoples to self-determination, said that many States lacked laws on inspections of private security companies and there were very few laws on the requirement for human rights-based vetting mechanisms to ensure private security companies’ personnel had training or complied with international human rights and humanitarian law standards.  Adopting a legally binding international regulatory instrument was the best way to ensure consistent regulation worldwide and adequate protection of the human rights of those affected by the activities of private security companies.
