Republic of Moldova is committed to contribute to the promotion of human rights at the national and international levels

On 25 October 2018, speaking before the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly, the ambassador Victor Moraru reiterated the commitment of the Republic of Moldova to contribute to the advancement of human rights at the national and international levels.

He emphasised that Moldova’s human rights policies are guided by United Nations treaties, regional conventions and those emanating from the Council of Europe, including the European Convention on Human Rights. This signifies a high level of accountability and monitoring. The Republic of Moldova holds regular dialogues with the European Union, and in recent years, legislative changes were made to ensure people’s access to justice. Another new and important piece of legislation refers to the humanization of criminal policy, which entered into force in December 2017, bringing the national criminal law and practice in line with Council of Europe standards.

The ambassador Victor Moraru underscored that while the Moldovan Government strives to continually improve the human rights situation in the country, it is also willing to engage and contribute internationally. That is why the Republic of Moldova has presented its candidature for election to the Human Rights Council for the term 2020-2022.
