The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is pleased to announce the formal launch of national consultations on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The ICCPR is a multilateral treaty adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in December 1966, and which came into force in March 1976. Belize signed and ratified this Convention in 1996 and is therefore bound to submit a comprehensive report on the measures it has adopted to give effect to the rights recognized in the ICCPR. The Government of Belize invites all interested stakeholders to actively participate in the consultation process which will inform Belize’s ICCPR report. The launch will be held on February 14th, 2014 at the George Price Center for Peace and Development, Belmopan from 9:00-11:00 a.m.
