Human Rights Panel Criticizes Blacklisting Methods

The Council of Europe’s legal committee urged an international overhaul of regulations for blacklisting individuals and groups to provide them access to evidence, rights to a fair trial or impartial review within a reasonable time, and compensation for wrongful designation as a terrorist.

I’m not sure yet what the implications of this may be, but maybe the EU could set a good example.

I’m going to bed.
