Children sanitation alert issued
By Matt McGrath

Millions of children’s lives are being put at risk each year because aid agencies and governments make wrong choices about health care priorities.

This is the conclusion of a new report from the charity WaterAid.

It says that diarrhoea caused by poor sanitation is killing many more children than HIV/Aids, tuberculosis and malaria combined.

The report says the global spending on HIV/Aids hugely outweighs the amounts spent on providing better sanitation.

British Sex Offenders Win Human Rights Claim

Two convicted sex offenders today won groundbreaking rulings that their “indefinite” registration on the sex offenders register with no right of review is “incompatible” with their human rights.

The test cases of teenager “F”, who cannot be identified, and an adult, Angus Thompson, came before three judges at the High Court in London.

Lord Justice Latham, Mr Justice Underhill and Mr Justice Flaux held the current registration scheme wrongly denied them the chance to prove in a review that they no longer posed a risk of reoffending.
The judges ruled both applicants were entitled to declarations that the scheme was incompatible with their Article 8 right to private and family life under the European Convention on Human Rights.
