@Billbrowder @lauferlaw @maddow @ACLU @HRC @amnesty @UNHumanRights @CJR @ICIJorg @OCCRP @guardian @NatashaBertrand #Romanian law is to be named after #Magnitsky, a Russian #antiCorruption activist who died in prison in 2009 and in whose honour Britain, Canada, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and the US have already passed similar ‘Magnitsky Acts’

@Billbrowder @lauferlaw @maddow @ACLU @HRC @amnesty @UNHumanRights @CJR @ICIJorg @OCCRP @guardian @NatashaBertrand The fact #Romania, which holds the #EUpresidency until 1 July, was moving ahead on a national level would lend “symbolic support” to the EU-level action, an EU diplomat said.

[#Thread] Malak al Kashef est une femme #transgenre défenseure des droits humains. Elle est détenue arbitrairement dans une prison pour hommes en #Egypte 🇪🇬 en raison de ses appels en faveur de manifestations pacifiques publiés sur les réseaux sociaux. ⬇️
#ActionUrgente 🚨
📅 Le 6 mars 2019, des agents de l’Agence de sécurité nationale ont effectué une descente au domicile familiale et l’ont enlevée, en raison de ses appels à #manifester après un accident de train ayant tué au moins 25 personnes au Caire le 27 février.

Les autorités l’ont ensuite conduite dans un lieu non déclaré et, le 7 mars, elle a comparu en l’absence d’#avocat devant un procureur de la sûreté de l’État, qui a ordonné son placement en détention pour 15 jours.

Just sat down to read @amnesty's new report on human rights in #Turkey. Some highlights: 57,000 detainees are currently in prison without indictment/pending trial (over 20% of the prison population) [1/5]

At least 529 academics (including some of #Turkey's brightest minds) are charged with terrorism propaganda for signing a declaration for peace in Kurdish-majority areas. President of Turkish human rights foundation, former chair of Turkish medical association, are in prison [2/5]
Of 129,411 public sector workers dismissed since 2016 failed coup (which killed 250 people) at least 121,928 couldn't overturn their dismissal (despite government lauding a commission to correct unfair dismissals). Passports revoked, can't work in public sector, stigmatised [3/5]

The Transgender Bill fails to plug the gap in the judicial protection of transgender persons who are victims of sexual assault or rape - thereby legally sanctioning discriminatory behavior and denying equal protection in law. #StopTransBill2018
The Bill also fails to recognize the need for appropriate infrastructure such as gender-neutral/gender inclusive toilets for transgender persons who face severe difficulties while accessing gender-segregated spaces. #StopTransBill2018
The Bill does not provide for reservations – disregarding the directions of the Supreme Court in NALSA to "extend all kinds of reservation in cases of admission in educational institutions and for public appointments.” #StopTransBill2018

THREAD: The US @StateDept released its annual #ReligiousFreedom report today. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, here's where #LGBT issues come up in this year's reports.
#LGBT issues feature in this year's reports on Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, the Maldives, Mauritania, New Zealand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Sudan, Syria & Turkey. (And I probably missed others.)
The report on #Australia stays pretty neutral in its discussion of the legalization of same-sex marriage and subsequent push for religious exemptions under Australian law. state.gov/documents/orga…
