Activity Synopsis (ID# 26203) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) To enable the lawyers in Georgia to apply in their daily work the European standards and safeguards for protection of the rights of detainees and effective investigation of the complaints of ill-treatment, and in particular to promote the direct application of these standards in the course of criminal procedure in Georgia.
To enhance the dialogue with the target group in Georgia. 
Output/Results The lawyers were trained on the European standards and safeguards for protection of the rights of detainees and effective investigation of the complaints of ill-treatment based on the substantive guidance elaborated by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) and in the case law of the ECtHR. The seminar resulted in a comprehesive discussion on the above mentioned subject and an exchange of experience among the participating lawyers who highlighted relevant examples from their own practice. 
Conclusions/Follow Up The capacity of the lawyers to apply the European standards in their daily work was developed. The seminar was organised in co-operation with the Georgian Young Lawyers Association under the Council of Europe/European Union Joint Programme ''Combating ill-treatment and impunity''.
