Mexico: Strengthening NPM’s capacities in monitoring the implementation of detention safeguards

September 11 - 14, 2018

The APT will deliver the second part of its detention monitoring training programme with the Mexican National Preventive Mechanism (NPM) – the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) – focusing on the monitoring of detention safeguards. The training will include both theoretical and practical discussions, as well as visits to specific places where persons are held in the first hours of detention.

The APT will also take the opportunity of its presence in Mexico to co-organise a seminar with the NHRC, to assess the status of implementation of the anti-torture law, which entered into force in June 2017.
