Special Awards In Pictures

The Independent National Commission on Human Rights (INCHR) will on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 commemorate Africa Pre-trial Detention Day under the theme: “Protecting and Respecting the Rights of Persons Held in Pre-Trial Detention”.

During the celebration in the Conference Hall of the Temple of Justice at 10:00 a.m., the Commission will launch its 2016 Thematic Report on the Conditions of Prisons and Prisoners around the country.

According to a dispatch from the INCHR, the commemoration is in line with an adoption of the 10th Biennial Conference of the Network of African National Human Rights Institutions (NANHRI) General Assembly in 2015. The Day was set aside to be celebrated at national level taking into account that excessive and arbitrary pre-trial detention is an abuse of human rights that affects millions of people each year. The commemoration also marks the 2nd anniversary of the adoption of the Luanda Guidelines on conditions of arrest, police custody and pre-trial detention.

The INCHR says the celebration will bring together several actors within the criminal justice system and the CSOs. Some of these actors following the launch of the report will sit on a panel to discuss the findings of the report and the challenges facing the justice system in relations to prisons and the way forward. The panelists will include an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, the Assistant Minister for Corrections and Rehabilitation of the Ministry of Justice, representative each from the Carter Center, Prison Fellowship and Association of Trial Judges.
