Peaceful Assembly

Article 42 of the Constitution also guarantees the freedom of peaceful assembly, with limitations on the grounds of security, public safety and the protection against the spread of infectious diseases.There was a very active protest movement in 2013 when allegations emerged of high-level political corruption involving the then-prime minister, which led to the collapse of the government. There were some reports of police violence against the protests. Protests were also seen in 2015 against the government’s decision to reinforce its borders against refugees.
