Activity Synopsis (ID# 32827) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) To enable the prosecutors studying in the School of Prosecutors to apply European standards for the effective investigation of allegations of ill-treatment, and in particular to promote the direct application of these standards in the course of criminal procedure in Armenia.
To enhance the dialogue with the target group in Armenia and to foster European human rights culture. 
Output/Results The prosecutors studying in the School of Prosecutors were trained on the relevant standards developed by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT), as well as the case law of the ECtHR in the area of positive obligations of the CoE member states to provide for the effective investigation of allegations of ill-treatment, and acquired practical skills for applying these standards in their daily work. The mode of direct application of the ECHR standards was emphasised and specific examples were provided and case studies conducted. The expert presentations resulted in a comprehesive discussion on the above-mentioned subject and an exchange of experience among the participants who highlighted relevant examples from their own practices.
