As part of the EU/CoE Horizontal Facility for Western Balkans and Turkey actions: “Enhancing Human Rights Protection for Detained and Sentenced People in Serbia” and to mark Human Rights Day, the CoE and OSCE Mission to Serbia held a one day seminar on the prohibition of torture and independent oversight of police conduct.

The seminar was attended by representatives from the Ombudsperson Office, the Ministry of Interior Departments (Anti-torture Commission, Internal control Department and Complaints Department) and civil society organisations.

Arvinder Sambei gave a presentation on the ECHR and IHRL frameworks on prohibition of torture, the meaning of ‘effective and independent investigation’ and police oversight bodies. This was followed by a discussion of the existing practice in Serbia and measures needed to bring the Serbian practice and procedure in line with regional and international standards.
