Council of Europe experts elaborate draft convention on the prevention of terrorism

The Council of Europe Committee of Experts on Terrorism (CODEXTER) adopted in first reading a new draft Convention on the Prevention of Terrorism. The Convention would criminalise forms of direct and indirect public provocation to commit terrorist acts and the recruitment and training of terrorists. Some delegations have suggested inclusion of a reporting obligation of citizens about terrorist threats. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, its Commissioner for Human Rights and Amnesty International made recommendations to amend the text so as to ensure compliance with human rights standards.
