What are the public issues that are resolved in this commitment?

The civil society`s freedom to participate in safeguarding democratic governance is getting limited, as indicated by several facts. First, there is the criminalisation of civil society who exercise their right to information and critical expression of a public policy. Second, the lack of protection for data security and civil society who exercise the right to information and expression. Finally, there is excessive and arbitrary use of force and authority against the right to assemble and organize. In this case, it is necessary to strengthen understanding related to restorative justice which can provide an alternative to imprisonment. Restorative justice has been implemented through various government policies and programs, such as the Juvenile Criminal Justice System (SPPA). However, there is no restorative justice policy direction for cases related to the right to information, the right to organize, the right to an opinion and the right to assemble.
