Right to Life - procedural obligation on states to investigate deaths
Back to main page on Right to Life

This and associated pages deals with the procedural obligation to have an independent investigation open to public scrutiny.

There are two key issues here:

- deaths involving the conduct of non-state actors (i.e companies)?
