2.1. International Law

Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinion without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers20.

I rest my case!!

The communications also indicated that, in several cases measures or actions were taken by the state, its agents, or an organized non-state entity for various reasons, including: out of fear - for example, to cover up wrongdoings and crimes against the people; as a manifestation of an exaggerated sensitivity to criticism of either a professional or personal nature; in aid of the pursuit by an individual, group, organization or institution of wealth, privilege and power by any and all means; intolerance of any individual, group or organization perceived to be obstructing such pursuit; out of arrogance or the "might is right" way of thinking, in which criticism or inquiry is not tolerated.

i also must pessimistically say that the actuality is not good.

it is the worse perpetrators of repression who most disregard it ... in fact, it is their take that it just plain doesnt apply to them.

The states most free will in the main comply, not because of it, but because they choose on their own to do so.

Sorry, I have zero faith in international bodies, up to and especially including the UN itself. They have on paper high ideals, but in reality do not perform, because they cannot perform, and cannot even agree to perform, and never will be able to.
