OMCT Activities

OMCT’s experience has enabled it to develop specific sets of activities aimed at reinforcing the SOS-Torture network and empowering and protecting its members. Likewise it engages in a range of activities aimed at eradicating torture and other human rights violations that fall within its mandate by means of prevention, denunciation, awareness raising, training, advocacy, proceedings against perpetrators, and assistance to and rehabilitation of victims.
