International Human Rights Day

10th December 2015

Today is International Human Rights Day. The Tory Government has made attempts to scrap our Human Rights Act, which includes our right to life and the prohibition of torture for which many have suffered to achieve.

On this day, the Scottish National Party has called on the UK Government to halt plans to scrap the Human Rights Act and, if they do proceed, for Scottish Parliament approval to be required to ensure that Scots’ human rights remain protected by the Act.
