1 de enero de 2002
This publication contains guidelines adopted by the Council of Europe's Committee of Ministers in July 2002 as recommendations both to member and non-member states seeking to combat the threat of terrorism through effective counter-measures, whilst at the same time upholding respect for fundamental human rights. The guidelines reaffirm states' obligation to ensure that all measures taken by states to combat terrorism must be lawful, and that torture must be prohibited. The framework set out in the guidelines concerns, in particular, the collecting and processing of personal data, measures which interfere with privacy, arrest, police custody and pre-trial detention, legal proceedings, extradition and compensation of victims.
