The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) will meet, from 10 and 14 June 2024, with a delegation from the National Commission for Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms of the Central African Republic, led by Mr. Yackoisset Ossene, Chair of the Commission.

During this visit, the CNDH will share its experience as a National Human Rights Institution (NHRI) for the protection and promotion of human rights.

Ms. Amina Bouayach, CNDH Chairperson, will launch the opening session of this visit on Monday 10 June 2024, at 10 am at the CNDH headquarters in Rabat, Morocco.

This visit is part of the CNDH actions aiming to strengthen its relations with NHRIs members of the Network of African National Human Rights Institutions (NANHRI), share its expertise and experiences and encourage the establishment of African NHRIs and raising their voices in various forums and events.

This visit is also part of the CNDH’s effort to assist the Central African Republic NHRI in acquiring membership in the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions (GANHRI) and supporting its request for accreditation from the GANHRI Sub-Committee on Accreditation (SCA).

The program includes several aspects related to the experience of transitional justice in Morocco.

The delegation will also visit the CNDH photo exhibition featuring the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Equity and Reconciliation Commission.  Additionally, they will meet with the CNDH officials to gain insights into the CNDH missions, including monitoring and protecting human rights, handling complaints, detainees’ rights, data processing, foreigners’ rights, protection of persons with disabilities and children, trials observation, drafting reports and opinions, among others.

The CNDH will also share insights on its experience as a NHRI that hosts three national mechanisms (National Mechanism for the Prevention of Torture, National Child Redress Mechanism, and National Mechanism for the Protection of Persons with Disabilities).

The delegation will visit the CNDH Regional Commission in the Casablanca-Settat region and the cemetery of the 1981 social events victims in Casablanca, Morocco.
