The UK government have asked for an independent review of the Human Rights Act to be conducted.
While it will be done on behalf of the UK government, they will not actively participate in this review process.
The goal of this review of the Human Rights Act is to discover if it is ethical and fair to all.
If changes need to be made the UK government will do what they can to find the best solutions.
Such changes will take time but the fact that they are looking into it is a step in the right direction. There is no decision that will make everyone happy, but the proposal is to do what is in the best interest of the majority.
Lord Faulks is in charge of this independent review.
There is a deadline of the end of 2021 to provide a full report to the UK government. This report will include their objective findings, their evaluation, and any recommendations for changes. Any such changes must comply with both domestic and international laws already established.
Some of the issues this will closely evaluate include armed forces personal.
One of the main topics is regarding how long veterans should have to file a personal injury claim. This is a controversial issue that has been discussed with the government in various settings.
It continues to divide the UK military forces and the government.
Some don’t feel the Human Rights Act does enough to assist them.
This can be an opportunity to eliminate such injustice if it is found to be valid. The government agrees there are some areas where the details implemented in 1998 fall short of the needs of today’s citizens.
The goal is to help find a balance between individual rights and the rights of the government.
