On March 26, the United Nations Human Rights Council, among others, discussed the annual report on Bolivia prepared by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
At the meeting, on behalf of the Hungarian government, András Dékány, Hungary’s UN Ambassador in Geneva, referred to the case of a Hungarian citizen, Előd Tóásó, arbitrarily detained in Bolivia.
Recommendations had been so far ignored and Hungary called on Bolivia to free Előd Tóásó in compliance with its international obligations, in particular those concerning pre-trial detention. Hungary thanked the local bureau of the Office of the High Commissioner concerning the legal and human rights aspects of the case. Hungary hoped that the Government of Bolivia would respond constructively to this case and open new beneficial avenues.
