Imphal, Jan 25
Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) has urge the Government of Manipur to upgrade the Manipur Human Rights Commission by notifying to open the Administration Division, Law Division, Investigation Division and Research and Transparency Division at the earliest. It also urged to provide sufficient Vehicles which could reach out every nook and corner of the state besides setting up Human Rights Cell in every districts of the state of Manipur.
“We learned that due to lack of enough manpower and the infrastructure within the Manipur Human Rights Commission, various cases on the violation of Human Rights could not be properly addressed as the primary Divisions such as Administration, Law, Investigation and Research and Transparency Divisions are still lacking since its establishment”, the Forum said and added that without the aforementioned Divisions the full fledged functioning of the commission will be hampered during the course of certain proceedings with regard to the cases of Human Rights violations.
The commission at present have no proper vehicles and adequate manpower to visit far flung places to to conduct enquiry of human rights violations.
