Gaza Govt Promotes Human Rights Training

The Gaza Interior Ministry today announced that the Reform and Rehabilitation Center in collaboration with an Independent Commission for Human Rights on Wednesday began a specialized course entitled “Human rights, Inmates and Law Enforcement” at the headquarters of the Authority in Gaza City.

The course provides workers with training in international and local human rights standards, to promote the rights of inmates in Gaza’s rehabilitation centers.

25 members of the Reform and Rehabilitation Directorate from all centers in the Gaza Strip are participating in the training, which takes place over 20 hours on three consecutive days.

In other recent moves, The Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Gaza to develop humanitarian and international committee training courses.

Interior Ministry adviser for international affairs Maher Alrami noted when signing the MOU that since the Haniyeh government took control of the Gaza Strip in 2006, the Interior Ministry has put considerable effort into training its staff in humanitarian and human rights issues.

“The Islamic religion accords dignity and prestige to human beings in times of peace and of war,” Alramli said.

The Reform and Rehabilitation Directorate of Gaza’s Ministry of Interior is receiving increasing recognition in the Arab world for the quality of its rehabilitation programmes, which it conducts in co-operation with a range of organisations such as the Independent Commission for Human Rights, the ICRC, the Palestinian Centre for Democracy and Conflict Resolution, UNDOC, UNDP and others.
