APCE : motion for a recommendation on the Convention on enforced disappearances

February 2009

[English] [français]

On February 4 2009, a motion for a recommendation on the Convention on enforced disappearances was presented to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe by the Italian member Mr. Gardetto and others.

The motion was prepared and proposed by a ICAED member, Aim for human rights.

The motion calls on the member States of the Council of Europe to sign and ratify the Convention without delay.

Additionally it also signals that an enforced disappearance as defined in the Convention is not recognised as a separate human rights violation in the European Convention on Human Rights.

And it subsequently invites the Committee of Ministers and the competent bodies of the Council of Europe to explore whether the codification of enforced disappearances as a separate human rights violation may contribute to improved protection within the system of the Council of Europe.
