Ireland's Human Rights Watchdog Raise Concerns Over Covid Restrictions

The State's Human Rights watchdog has raised concerns about Covid-19 restrictions, saying aspects of how laws have been formulated, enforced and communicated ''raise significant human rights and equality concerns''.

The Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission report argues there is a “black hole” for considering the impact of regulations on human rights, with the delegation of powers to the Minister for Health making it “difficult to maintain effective democratic oversight”.

The report warns the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet) lacks human rights expertise.
