Dear Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission,

The government is talking about discriminating people that doesn't want the covid19 injection product. By saying no jab no job or you'll lose the right to enter pubs and restaurants without the jab. Also by introducing Freedom passports.
Anyway my questions are
1. Does the Nuremberg treaty still stand?
As it states all medical treatments must ne consented and you can't be discriminated against if you refuse the product. It also states medical treatments must be tested on animals before being given to humans and the pharmaceutical companies admitted they missed out animal testing too rush out the product.

2. Can an employer force a vaccine product on their employees?
Again that breaches the Nuremberg treaty

3. What human rights have we left? If the government/companies can force people against their will or blackmail them into a vaccine product.

Yours faithfully,

Adrian McErlean

Dear Adrian,
We have considered your email and can confirm we are not treating it as
Freedom of Information request as you have asked for an opinion which the
Commission does not hold on record.
I have provided some further detail below that may assist you.
1.   The Nuremburg Treaty relates to the Nuremburg Code which speaks to
the voluntary consent of individual for medical experiments. It is not
listed as a human rights treaty before the United Nations. You may wish to
review the [1]UN Treaty database to review other areas of treaty law.
2.   The concept of informed consent is protected under current human
rights treaties at the international and regional level. For example, it
is protected under Article 7 of the [2]International Covenant on Civil and
Political Rights and Article 8 of the [3]European Convention on Human
Rights. The UK has signed and ratified both of these treaties. The ECHR
has been domesticated through the [4]Human Rights Act 1998, which means
that public authorities are under a duty to ensure that they comply with
the rights protected by the HRA. Domestic policy also requires [5]informed
consent, prior to the conducting of medical procedures. Failure to comply
with this may result in a criminal offence. The principle of
non-discrimination is also protected by both human rights law and domestic
legislation in NI.
3.   The Human Rights Act 1998 only applies against public authorities and
not private employers. Employers will be subject to domestic employment
and discrimination legislation. You may wish to seek further advice from
the Labour Relations Agency or the Equality Commission for Northern
The Human Rights Act 1998 continues to apply and can be enforced by
individuals through the Courts if they consider their rights to have been
