Summary

On 1 and 2 December the Project Co-ordinator in Uzbekistan (PCUz), in co-operation with the OSCE Secretariat’s Action against Terrorism Unit, organized a national seminar on effective criminal justice responses to terrorism based on the rule of law.

The seminar gathered about 30 representatives of national agencies involved in counter-terrorism and focused on the Global Counterterrorism Forum’s (GCTF) Rabat Memorandum on Good Practices for Effective Counter-terrorism Practice in the Criminal Justice Sector. Experts in the field of criminal justice presented good practices developed in Germany, the Netherlands the United Kingdom, the United States, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as the work the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes (UNODC) is pursuing in this area.

Among other topics, participants discussed the effective co-ordination between domestic government agencies and the importance of international co-operation. The seminar also highlighted the need to ensure the protection of sensitive intelligence and law enforcement information, as well as to adopt incentives for suspects to co-operate with state authorities in the investigation and prosecution of terrorism offences.
