Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly talks about the code of conduct for law enforcement officials adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 17 December 1979. It discusses 8 articles agreed by the General Assembly. The General Assembly agreed upon the articles by considering that the purposes proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations include the achievement of international co-operation in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion, and by recalling, in particular, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenants on Human Rights.
