November and December saw our Director giving high-profile interviews to several leading news agencies, including international agencies CNN, Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya.
In all interviews, Neil presented our concerns with Malta’s detention regime wherein he highlighted two recent European Court of Human Rights judgements (Aden Ahmed and Suso). Neil explained why Malta’s detention regime is in violation of international human rights standards, explaining the guarantees states must put in place when detaining non-nationals and emphasising the need to ensure humane living conditions.
We are keen to have a prominent, honest and unwavering voice in national and international media as part of our advocacy strategy. In our interventions we readily provide information on various local human rights perspectives and also stress our concerns and recommendations.
