Will Govt. Move to Slash HRC’s Powers?



(TopNews) The Government has amended the Penal Code Act to designate magistrates to visit police stations and inquire about suspects.

These powers are earlier vested with the Human Rights Commission(HRC) and International Red Cross(ICRC).

It’s not clear whether the HRC and ICRC’s powers curtailed or not in the Cabinet paper approved last week.
