Rishi Gulati

List member Rishi Gulati, together with Dr Philippa Webb (20 Essex Street, London) are representing a former employee of the Asian Development Bank headquartered in the Philippines at the United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC). An action has been filed at the UNHCR against the Philippines for breaching the complainant's internationally guaranteed human right. It is hoped that this case will affirm and establish that host states are held accountable for their failures when public international organisations (such as the ADB) hosted on their territory engage in a denial of justice.
