Singh v France [CCPR/C/ 102/D/ 1876/2009] – France Turban Case: access the documents

January 13, 2012 | By

Ludhiana, Punjab (January 13, 2011): Sikh Siyasat Network has accessed the documents related to decision of Human Rights Committee in a case titled Singh v. France [CCPR/C/ 102/D/ 1876/2009], known as the Turban case related to France.

In this case “[T]he Committee found that the requirement that an individual appear bareheaded in the identity photograph used for a residence permit constituted an arbitrary interference with the author’s freedom of religion (Art. 18). Therefore, it requested the State party to provide the author with an effective remedy, including a reconsideration of his application for a renewal of his residence permit and a review of the relevant legislative framework and its application in practice, in order to avoid exposing others to similar risks of a violation in the future. It should moreover, within 180 days, give the Committee information about the measures taken to give effect to its views, as well as publishing the Committee’s Views.” (Singh v. France, Case Summery, p.2)
