The Attorney-General, Aiyaz-Sayed Khaiyum, has left the country to represent the Fijian Government at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva tomorrow.

Fiji will undergo its second Universal Periodic Review (UPR), an assessment of each UN member country’s rights record held every four years.

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process which involves a review of the human rights records of all UN Member States.

The UPR is a State-driven process, under the auspices of the Human Rights Council, which provides the opportunity for each State to declare what actions they have taken to improve the human rights situations in their countries and to fulfill their human rights obligations.

As one of the main features of the Council, the UPR is designed to ensure equal treatment for every country when their human rights situations are assessed.
