On right to privacy of PVCHR which is violated by the postal department of Varanasi and IB of Home Ministry of India.

To,                                                                                                                                                                             27 January, 2011

 Respected Sir,
Again Peoples' Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR) is facing problem with the postal department, Varanasi. As on dated  25 January 2011 we received the open envelop which is violation of right to privacy.
PVCHR is continuously facing the similar problem on 20th October, 2010 Frontline, Ireland sent the identity card to the human rights defender facing risk. However till now I did not receive the card. This activity of the department is badly affecting the work and the privacy of the organization.
In this respect we already complained to National Human Rights Commission and to National Human Rights Commission and Prime Minister our office. However no appropriate action was taken by the concerned authority still postal department is interrupting the postage document of the organization.
Therefore it is a kind request to kindly persuade postal department to stop banning the postage document of PVCHR and take immediate action to stop Mr. Srivastava of IB under Home Ministry of India for breaking the privacy of PVCHR so, the organization can works up to full extent and the people may be benefited with organization work.
Thanking You
Sincerely Yours
Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi

Dear Dr. Raghuvanshi,

Wishing you a very Happy New Year too.

According to my records, I posted your ID card on 20 October 2010.

If you think it is unlikely to be delivered at this stage I could make you a new one and send it by courier if you wish and hopefully you will receive it then?

I am sorry to hear you have not received it yet.

Best wishes,

      Dear Dr. Raghuvanshi,

      I am writing to you to tell you about the Front Line ID card for
      human rights defenders.

      It is an ID card that would have your name and picture on it and
      certifies that you are a human rights defender that is registered
      with Front Line. The card is intended to be of practical
      assistance to human rights defenders at risk. We hope that it will
      enable you to demonstrate that you have international contacts and
      legitimacy for the work that you are doing. If you would like an
      ID card please send me your name, the language you want the card
      in (English, French, Spanish, Arabic or Russian), a passport
      photograph in jpeg format (head and shoulders only on a plain
      white background), and postal address to send it to you.

      You may also like to know that Front Line has a 24-hour emergency
      number that can be contacted at any hour on (+353 1 21 00 489)
      where you can speak to someone in English, French, Spanish, Arabic
      or Russian. We hope to receive most calls during office hours
      (09.30 -17.30 Mon-Fri) but if you need to contact us urgently
      because someone is at risk then you can do so and we will try to
      help. This number is also on the back of the Human Rights Defender

      Yours Sincerely

      Louise O'Connor
