Tuesday, May 19, 2015

In April, the APT participated in the second part of an exchange between the National Preventive Mechanisms of France and of Honduras.

The first part of the exchange took place in November 2014, when the Honduran NPM (CONAPREV) visited France. This is the first such exchange of experiences and best practices between a Latin American and a European torture prevention body.
