Statement at the African Regional Conference on Human Rights
Statement by the Secretary-General of the OAU, H.E. Mr. Salim Ahmed Salim, at the African Regional Conference on Human Rights in Tunis.
"Any society needs rules. Any government needs laws simply as any club needs regulations. But the idea is not and must not be to curtail or to undermine freedom. Rather, it must be to ensure that there is a balance of rights and an equal share of responsibilities."
