GENEVA – 14 September 2018: The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR)’s seminar titled, ‘Terrorism and Human Rights in Egypt: Compensation for Victims of Terrorism and Qatari support of terrorism,’ is currently in session. The seminar comes on the sidelines of the 39th Session of the International Council for Human Rights in Geneva, Switzerland.

Hafez Abu Seada, Egyptian human rights activist and Chairman of the (EOHR), Essam Shiha, lawyer and Secretary General of the EOHR, and Salah Salam, member of the National Council for Human Rights (NCHR) are all participating in the seminar.

This seminar comes within the framework and the role that the EOHR, established in 1985, plays in the human rights world in Egypt. As one of the top non-governmental organizations working in the field of human rights in Egypt, the organization operates in accordance with the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and international human rights legislation and conventions.

To ensure it fulfils its mandate, the organization is often keen on shedding light on the issue of terrorism. Accordingly, EOHR has organized, in cooperation with the Arab Federation for Human Rights (AFHR), a similar seminar last year titled ‘Terrorism and Human Rights… the issue and mechanisms of confrontation’.

The seminar tackled a number of important topics, including those coming from Syria and Libya and their impact on the exacerbation of the phenomenon of terrorism, polarization, recruitment and the mechanism of armed violence groups, those who use religious discourse to accuse individuals or groups of apostasy, and recommendations for dealing with and confronting these issues.

Earlier during their visit to Geneva, the EOHR held a seminar titled ‘Forced Disappearance in Egypt’.

The session was chaired by Hafez Abu Seada, Egyptian human rights activist and Chairman of the Egyptian Organization for Human rights (EOHR); panellists included Essam Shiha, Secretary General of the EOHR, Salah Salam, member of the National Council for Human Rights (NCHR), Alaa Shalaby, Secretary General of the Arab Organization for Human Rights (AOHR), Tarek Zaghloul, Executive Director at EOHR, and Mohamed Osman, International Relations Coordinator at EOHR.
