Annual report 2010

The OMCT celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2010. The president stated that this is an opportunity for a quick look back over its history as well as a look forward to the future, honouring the work of the previous Secretary General, Eric Sottas. In 2010, the OMCT launched a campaign calling for support for a Manifesto signed by 10 Nobel Prize laureates which we hope will alert public opinion to the existence of practices that negate human dignity.

In this annual report, some highlights include:

  • Followed up on 33% of the urgent interventions
  • Carried out 31 missions to the field within the framework of the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders
  • Undertook a solidarity mission to the Democratic Republic of the Congo in February to support Congolese women victims of rape and the human rights defenders working with them, with the production of a short film and a photographic exhibition that was launched in Geneva and Bern.
