South Africa troika letter

16/06/2008 – AI writes to the Slovenian Presidency, ahead of the EU-South Africa Troika, drawing attention to the need for discussion of the South African government response to the violent attacks that have taken place in South Africa recently, on the basis of the victims’ perceived ethnic origins or status as ‘foreigners’ or asylum seekers. The letter also calls for the EU to prioritise preparations for the UN High Level meeting on HIV/AIDS in New York on 10-11 June.
