International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. 9. The Committee further observes that, by adhering to the Optional Protocol, a State party to the Covenant recognizes the competence of the Committee to receive and consider communications from individuals subject to its jurisdiction who claim to be victims of a violation of any of the rights set forth in the Covenant (preamble and art. 1 of the Optional Protocol).

The Committee is one of ten UN human rights treaty bodies, each .

The Committee is one of ten UN human rights treaty bodies, each responsible for overseeing the implementation of a particular treaty. States that have ratified or acceded to the First Optional Protocol (currently 116 countries) have agreed to allow persons within their jurisdiction to submit complaints to the Committee requesting a determination whether provisions of the Covenant have been violated. It remains disputed whether the Human Rights Committee's "Views under article 5(4) of the Optional Protocol" qualify as decisions of a quasi-judicial body or simply constitute authoritative interpretations on the merits of the cases brought before them.

The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Optional Protocol thereto were adopted by the General Assembly in 1966 and entered into force in 1976. This is the final volume in a set of seven volumes collecting selected decisions of the Human Rights Committee under the Optional Protocol. The volumes reflect certain important decisions declaring which communications are admissible and other decisions of an interlocutory nature. This volume covers the period after the 65th session.
