Seminar on the domestication of the UNCAT in Madagascar

Monday, February 5, 2007

From 23 to 25 January 2007, the APT co-organised with the Ministry of Justice and in collaboration with the ACAT-Madagascar, a seminar on the implementation of the UN Convention against Torture in Madagascar. 

The seminar had the objective to reflect on ways and means to domesticate the UNCAT provisions in Madagascar. The seminar reviewed national legislation and practices to identify gaps and areas that need improvement or reforms and came up with a plan of action which will guide the Ministry of Justice to undertake legal reforms and other preventive measures including the criminalisation of torture.
