Geneva – 19th November 2020
Mr. Chairperson, Distinguished Commissioners, State Delegates and Civil society organisations,
The World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) and its SOS-Torture network in Africa thank the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) for this opportunity to raise some of the key issues with respect to the human rights situation in Africa.
Our network would like to commend the Commission for continuing its work during this complex crisis, using technology to ensure the promotion and protection of human rights across the continent while other treaty bodies have suspended their activities.
