The United Nations is establishing a human rights office in Guinea to assist the government in averting abuses. The office aims to boost the government efforts to safeguard human rights, fight impunity and empower the Guinean people in realizing all of their rights including economic, social and cultural rights, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said.

An International Commission of Inquiry mandated by U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon suggested that the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Right put up a country office in Conakry.
