Tripoli, 10 February 2014:
Some 200 human rights activists are to be sent to Morocco for training on different . . .[restrict]methods of dealing with cases of human rights abuses.
The situation in Libya was a difficult one, with cases of human rights abuses dating back decades, Chairman of Morocco’s Human Rights Council Mohamed Sabbar said. The state was overwhelmed by the sheer number of these cases, he added.
The fifteen-day training is being run by Morocco’s Human Rights Council. It will build on skills by looking at different methods of dealing with human rights abuses. It will also consider case studies from other countries, including South Africa, to see how human rights issues from the past have been dealt with.
The activists will require visas for the training, after Morocco announced on Saturday that visa regulations for Libyan visitors were changing. [/restrict]
