Action

To consider the draft reply to Parliamentary Assembly Recommendation 1640 (2004), as it appears in document CM/AS(2006)Rec1640prov, with a view to its adoption.

1. Recommendation 1640 was adopted on 26 January 2004. At their 872nd meeting (12 February 2004, item 3.1) the Deputies decided, among other things, to communicate it to the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights for opinion at his earliest convenience and invited their Rapporteur Group on Human Rights (GR-H) to prepare a draft reply for adoption at one of their forthcoming meetings. The Commissioner issued his opinion in document BCommDH(2004)31 at the Deputies’ 909th meeting (15 December 2004, item 4.2b).
However, at that meeting, issues were raised which eclipsed for a time the preparation of a reply to the Assembly.

2. The resent draft reply has now been prepared on the basis of the Commissioner’s opinion in document BCommDH(2004)31 but taking account of developments since its issue, including the arrival of the present Commissioner, who has given his approval to the text.

3. The GR-H will examine the draft at its meeting on 14 September 2006; the Chairman of GR-H will report orally on the outcome of the discussion.

Financing assured: YES.
