Disclaimer

All the above linked convenants and conventions are scanned and certified by the United Nations. Unfortunately, the more older the document the more degraded its quality and readability. It is recommended at this time to contact and demand quality scans from the Under-Secretary-General for Legal Affairs and the Legal Counsel of the United Nations: Mr. Miguel de Serpa Soares at the FAX number +1 212 963 6430.

Mr. Miguel de Serpa Soares probably very busy making statements instead of providing support for activists, human rights defenders and lawyers. If you obtain a quality scan please submit it to: qualityscans@humanrights.legal.
