EOHR will hold the fifth workshop entitled “How to eliminate the crime of torture,” on Tuesday November 26th and Wednesday November 27th at the headquarters of the organization, which is to form a network of those interested in the file of torture in Egypt, in order to contribute to the eradication of this phenomenon, which violates the basic Egyptian human rights.

This workshop is part of the organization’s plan in working to raise the cultural awareness about the crime of torture, amending the Egyptian legislative structure to confront this crime in line with international conventions, agreements, and international law, and emphasizing the importance of the role of civil society, the media, and journalists in the eradication of this crime.

For his side, Mr. Hafez Abu Saada, President of EOHR, has asserted that the crime of torture must be eliminated completely because it violates the basic human rights, which is the right to live freely securely, therefore it is necessary to confront this problem by building a generation capable of dealing with these issues and working at the same time on the dissemination of the anti- torture culture.
