The Panel is an independent group of eight jurists appointed by the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) to examine the global impact of terrorism and counter-terrorism measures on the rule of law and human rights.
The sub-regional hearing in Rabat was organized by the Organisation Marocaine des Droits Humains (OMDH), an affiliate of the ICJ. It was the sixth in a series of hearings taking place in all regions of the world this year.
Similar hearings were held in Colombia, East Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom, including Northern Ireland. The next hearing will be held in the United States of America in September.
