Salil Shetty, Amnesty International's new Secretary General, talks about his hopes for the organization


1 July 2010

Salil Shetty, the new Secretary General of Amnesty International, on Thursday began his first full day in office by pledging to do all that he can to ensure governments respect the rights of the world's most impoverished and vulnerable groups.

"I am deeply privileged to have this opportunity to lead the movement in its fight to end repression and injustice," Salil Shetty said. "With traditional human rights challenges persisting and several new challenges confronting the world, the need for Amnesty International as a leading voice against human rights violations is greater than ever before."
