Together to Abolish Exceptional and Emergency Laws

Under the slogan” Together to Abolish Exceptional and Emergency Laws and Courts”, APHRA launched its campaign to unite forces with two workshops: on February 12, 2003, and on October 18, 2003. The first Workshop was concerned with developing practical mechanisms for abolishing exceptional/emergency laws and courts and bringing out the challenges and problems they pose on all dimensions of society. The second Workshop was dedicated to shedding light on the positions of jurists and media persons regarding the state of emergency and its negative impact on the basic rights and freedoms of all sectors in society in general and judges, lawyers, journalists and politicians in specific who are of great importance for this purpose since they are more capable of and qualified for confronting the effects of this “permanent” exceptional state than other sectors.
