#Tunisia has a great law granting right to request & obtain information from govt agencies and publicly funded institutions. If implementation is half-decent, it'll set standard for transparency in region.

The harms and dangers that come from restricting access to abortion are not a thing of the past. Ingriane Barbosa Carvalho, a mother of three in her 30s, died in 2018 in #Brazil from complications from an unsafe abortion. Her death could have been avoided.

We have seen @realDonaldTrump's fear-mongering before. Processing increasing numbers of children and families seeking asylum is not a crisis; it is not only manageable but a responsibility any country should willingly bear. @BillFrelick @HRW

Good to speak to John Humphrys on @BBCr4today this morning with Yvonne McDermott Rees @Swansea_Law on prosecuting war crimes committed in Syria and Iraq. Important to focus on those most responsible and for states to cooperate. (Last 5 mins of clip.)
