EUPOL COPPS advisers from Germany and Finland delivered training for 11 Palestinian prosecutors on international human rights conventions and standards, including the right to a fair trial, with a focus on how these standards can be applied in Palestine.

The training underlined the importance for prosecutors to act in an impartial, objective and fair-minded way, as well as knowing the relevant domestic and international laws in detail.

Respect for human rights is a foundation stone of law enforcement work and central to EUPOL COPPS’ activity in Palestine. Further human rights trainings for prosecutors and other rule of law institutions are planned in the coming months.

EUPOL COPPS is the European Union Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support. The aim of the Mission is to contribute to the establishment of sustainable and effective policing arrangements and to advise Palestinian counterparts on criminal justice and rule of law related aspects under Palestinian ownership.
