Monrovia – The United Nations in Liberia led by its Resident Coordinator Niels Scott, has called on the Liberian Government to implement all of the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR) recommendations covering its third cycle. The UPR is a ‘unique’ process which involves a periodic review of the human rights records of all 193 UN Member States by the Human Rights Council (HRC). It also provides the states an opportunity for them to declare what actions they have taken to improve the human rights situations in their countries and to overcome challenges to the enjoyment of human rights. However, the UN Resident Coordinator, Niels Scott called on the Government to implement all of the UPR recommendations or as many as possible. For his part, the UNDP Resident Representative to Liberia, Stephen Rodriques promised the government’s continued support towards implementing the recommendations.
