Dickson slams Government on human rights…

AS he prepares to stand down in February, NI Human Rights Commissioner Brice Dickson accuses the British Government of acting in an “immoral” manner by using rights issues as a bargaining chip in political negotiations to restore a devolved Assembly.Dickson also effectively accuses the Government of institutionalising cover-ups through the Inquiries Bill, politicising rights issues that should be above politics, and neglecting the Commission, as well as using its powers (or lack thereof) as something to be negotiated in political talks.
