The request was made in a joint stakeholder report submitted by SPI and Centre to the UPR Working Group. The Joint stakeholder report is part of a broader stakeholders’ efforts to provide information to the UPR working group on the implementation status of the recommendations received by South Africa during the 3rd cycle of its review by the UPR working group in 2017.
