Managers of the Department of Temporary Detention and the Temporary Detention Facilities are trained on the application of Article 3 of the ECHR

In December 2021, 30 managers of the Temporary Detention Department (TDD) and the Temporary Detention Isolators (TDI) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) participated in two 2-day training sessions on the application of Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

This action supported the above-mentioned managers in their duty to implement safeguards against torture, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment in the detention facilities. Following these training workshops, which were held on 1-2 and 15-16 December, participants were equipped with knowledge about the relevant case law of the European Court on Human Rights on the standards for appropriate treatment of detainees.

This activity was organised within the framework of the Council of Europe Project “Human Rights Compliant Policing in Georgia” (HRCPG) which is designed to address the issues related to effective policing in line with human rights standards, the rights of detained persons and their treatment by police, the treatment of juvenile victims and offenders as well as effective investigation into alleged ill-treatment by police and effective remedies against police misconduct.

We work together to promote Human rights, Democracy and Rule of Law.
