Draft Guidelines of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe on eradicating impunity for serious human rights violations

The ICJ and other human rights groups welcome the opportunity to comment on the Draft Guidelines on Eradicating Impunity for Serious Human Rights Violations.

Notwithstanding the considerable progress made to date in the drafting of the Guidelines, the organizations hope that they can be further strengthened in the course of this meeting, to add the greatest possible value to the fight against impunity.

The organizations have also made suggestions for additional references in the Guidelines’ reference texts, in a separate paper.
