Dr.Hafez Abu Saeda, the President of the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (Eohr), delivered an oral statement today 11/3/2019 during the fortieth session of the International Human Rights Council

He confirmed that terrorism is a scourge that strikes our societies and needs to be uprooted. This requires intensifying the international cooperation in order to share best experiences and practices, stop financing terrorist groups and provide them with weapons and support media platforms that incite hatred and violence in violation of international law and the United Nations Charter.
He also thanked the High Commissioner for Human Rights for its report to the Council regarding the impact of terrorism on the rights of children. He encouraged the High Commissioner to continue to address the impact of terrorism on all human rights. Additionally, he urged the Special Rapporteur to protect human rights during combating terrorism, give due attention to the question of the impact of terrorism on the enjoyment of human rights and to include them in the tasks of its mandate, and focus on the rights of victims and their families who pay the price with their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
In conclusion, he expressed the Egyptian Organization’s solidarity with the victims of terrorism and their families, calling the Council and its mechanisms to protect and honor their rights and the rights of their loved ones emphasizing on the respect for human rights while fighting terrorism.
