The National Human Rights Commission and the General Executive Agency for Court Decisions have signed the Memorandum of Understanding for the purpose of advancing the human rights knowledge of officers and staff of General Executive Agency for Court Decisions, supporting in shaping the human rights-based approach into management and operation of the organization, preventing any human rights violations that could derive from processes of arrest and detention and upholding their code of conduct and responsibilities of the officers. Under the framework of this MoU, the Commission organized a human rights training for officers of correction facility No.409 on 16 April 2019.

It is crucial for correction facility officers to apply international standards for human rights including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UN Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, Body of Principles for the Protection of All Persons under Any Form of Detention or Imprisonment and the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.

As part of the National Human Rights Commission functions to promote and provide human rights education, the Commission has been developing a human rights training programme tailored to the needs and requirements of the law enforcement organizations and organizing the training for its targeted groups including the officers of the General Executive Agency of Court Decisions.
