History of situations considered since the establishment of the complaint procedure How does the complaint procedure work?
Manifestly ill-founded and anonymous communications are screened out. Communications not rejected in the initial screening are transmitted to the State concerned to obtain its views on the allegations of violations. Both the author of a communication and the State concerned are informed of the proceedings at each stage.
Two distinct working groups - the Working Group on Communications and the Working Group on Situations — are responsible, respectively, for examining written communications and bringing consistent patterns of gross and reliably attested violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms to the attention of the Council.
What are the criteria for a communication to be accepted for examination? A communication related to a violation of human rights and fundamental freedoms is admissible, provided that: Nonetheless, reliably attested communications shall not be inadmissible solely because the knowledge of the individual authors is second-hand, provided that they are accompanied by clear evidence; It is not exclusively based on reports disseminated by mass media; It does not refer to a case that appears to reveal a consistent pattern of gross and reliably attested violations of human rights already being dealt with by a special procedure, a treaty body or other United Nations or similar regional complaints procedure in the field of human rights; Domestic remedies have been exhausted, unless it appears that such remedies would be ineffective or unreasonably prolonged.
National human rights institutions, established and operating under the Principles Relating to the Status of National Institutions the Paris Principlesin particular in regard to quasi-judicial competence, may serve as effective means of addressing individual human rights violations.
