second and third periodic reports by 31 December 2004 and/or to submit specific
information on the effect of measures taken to fight against terrorism after
the events of 11 September 2001 and notably the implications of the Patriot Act
on nationals as well as on non-nationals (articles 13, 17, 18 and 19 of the
Covenant), as well as on problems relating to the legal status and treatment of
persons detained in Afghanistan, Guantánamo Bay, Iraq
and other places of detention outside the territory of the United States of
America (articles 7, 9, 10 and 14 of the Covenant). On 1 April 2005, during its
eighty-third session, the Committee addressed a letter to the United States of
America, taking note of correspondence from the State party dated 24 March 2005
concerning the submission of its second and third periodic reports, and

20. The State party should take firm measures to eradicate all forms of ill-treatment by law enforcement officials and ensure prompt, thorough, independent and impartial investigations into all allegations of torture and ill-treatment. It should prosecute perpetrators and ensure that they are punished in a manner proportionate to the seriousness of the crimes committed, and grant effective remedies including compensation to the victims.
21. The State party should continue to reinforce international cooperation as well as practical measures to combat trafficking in human beings, prosecute and punish perpetrators and combat trafficking-related corruption. Protection should be provided to all witnesses and victims of trafficking so that they may have a place of refuge and an opportunity to give evidence against those held responsible.
22. The State party is urged to improve the conditions of detention for those held on remand and for convicted persons. Individuals held in remand detention should be segregated from convicted persons. The State party should also provide the necessary measures for victims of unlawful arrest or detention to claim compensation. The State party is reminded that, under article 9, paragraph 3, it shall not be the general rule that suspected persons are detained while awaiting trial. The State party should develop an effective system of bail.
23. The State party should guarantee the independence of the judiciary, take measures to eradicate all forms of interference with its independence, to allow access to justice to all without discrimination and ensure that unconvicted detainees are brought to trial as speedily as possible.
24. The State party should fully guarantee and protect the right of freedom of opinion and expression of journalists and media representatives and introduce legal mechanisms and practical measures to that effect
25. The State party should reinforce measures to combat abuse and exploitation of children, and establish public awareness-raising campaigns regarding children’s rights.
26. The Fifth Committee (Administrative and Budgetary), as reaffirmed by General Assembly resolution 45/248 B, Sect. VI, is the Main Committee of the General Assembly entrusted with responsibilities for administration and budgetary matters.
27. The General Assembly considers and approves the budget of the Organization, in accordance with Article 17 of the Charter of the United Nations. The Assembly also considers and approves financial and budgetary arrangements with specialized agencies making recommendations to the agencies concerned.
28. Due to the increased workload of the Fifth Committee during the past years, it has now become the standard practice that the Committee meets, not only during the main part of the General Assembly session (September to December) but during resumed sessions, in March and in May of a given year.
During the main part of the session, the Fifth Committee considers issues that
require the approval of the General Assembly for funding by the end of the
year. The resumed session held in March deals with issues that were not
completed during the main part of the session. In accordance with General Assembly
resolution 49/233 of
The Sixth Committee
states, the item entitled “United Nations Programme
of Assistance in the Teaching, Study, Dissemination and Wider Appreciation of
International Law” was included in the provisional agenda of the sixtieth

31. The United Nations Convention on the Use of Electronic Communications in International Contracts A/60/515 begins, The States Parties to this Convention,
Reaffirming their belief that international trade on the basis of equality and mutual benefit is an important element in promoting friendly relations among States,
Noting that the increased use of electronic communications improves the efficiency of commercial activities, enhances trade connections and allows new access opportunities for previously remote parties and markets, thus playing a fundamental role in promoting trade and economic development, both domestically and internationally,
Considering that problems created by uncertainty as to the legal value of the use of electronic communications in international contracts constitute an obstacle to international trade,
Convinced that the adoption of uniform rules to remove obstacles to the use of electronic communications in international contracts, including obstacles that might result from the operation of existing international trade law instruments, would enhance legal certainty and commercial predictability for international contracts and help States gain access to modern trade routes,
Being of the opinion that uniform rules should respect the freedom of parties to choose appropriate media and technologies, taking account of the principles of technological neutrality and functional equivalence, to the extent that the means chosen by the parties comply with the purpose of the relevant rules of law,
Desiring to provide a common solution to remove legal obstacles to the use of electronic communications in a manner acceptable to States with different legal, social and economic systems.
32. Under Rule 1 of the Rules of Procedure of the General Assembly of 31 December 1984 the General Assembly shall meet every year in a regular session commencing on the Third Tuesday in September. The Draft Outcome Document of 13 September 2005 for the World Summit HA-15-9-05 orders

35. Pursuant to our commitment to further strengthen the United Nations human rights machinery, we resolve to create a Human Rights Council.
36. The Council will be responsible for promoting universal respect for the protection of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, without distinction of any kind and in a fair and equal manner.
37. The Council should address situations of violations of human rights, including gross and systematic violations and make recommendations thereon. It should also promote effective coordination and the mainstreaming of human rights within the UN system.
38. The Original Draft Outcome Document A/59/HLPM/CRP.1/Rev.1 of 22 July 2005 makes preliminary consideration for the Human Rights Council to have the following mandate, size and composition:
(a) It will be the organ primarily responsible for promoting universal respect for and observance and protection of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, without distinction of any kind and in a fair and equal manner, recognizing their indivisible, inalienable and interrelated character.

(b) The Council shall comprise between 30 and 50 members, each serving for a period of three years, to be elected directly by the General Assembly, by a two thirds majority. In establishing the membership of the Council, due regard shall be given to the principle of equitable geographical distribution and the contribution of Member States to the promotion and protection of human rights;
