Recommendations
  • Promover el concepto de Estado laico y la separación entre la esfera de los derechos humanos y las creencias religiosas a través de un decreto presidencial que prohiba apelar a creencias religiosas en el ejercicio de la función pública. Alternativamente, sería necesaria una ley para regular este tema.
  • El Presidente de la República y el Ministerio de Finanzas deben eliminar las subvenciones a las instituciones religiosas y de culto.
