The EIPR: The government must respect the right to peaceful assembly and the right to privacy and cease grave violations of constitutional rights;

Report: “Pending Further Review: One Year of the Church Regularization Committee” Nine existing churches closed and the right to worship deteriorates further
The EIPR believes that such a decree would most faithfully enact the provisions of the church construction law, however flawed, as well as treat the causes of sectarian violence, which is largely rooted in bureaucratic obstruction and clear recalcitrance on the part of the security apparatus.
