Excellent news from the Council of Europe (CoE), the world’s leading human rights organisation. It is the governing body of the European Court of Human Rights. As you’re probably aware the CoE is distinct and separate from the EU. 47 countries including all EU Member States are contracting parties to the CoE and the EurOpean Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). This is excellent news for people concerned about mandatory or coerced vaccination or discrimination on vaccination status
Today a Council of Europe resolution has been voted that prohibits Member States from making vaccination against the coronavirus mandatory or that it can be used to discriminate against workers or anyone who does not get vaccinated.
Here is the text extracted at specific points and the full resolution in original and original link.
