EU: counter-terrorism laws must comply with human rights obligations

Four years after the EU Directive on Combating Terrorism came into force, more effort is needed to ensure it is implemented in accordance with human rights law obligations, said Amnesty International, the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), the European Centre for Not-for-Profit Law (ECNL) and the European Network against Racism (ENAR). The organizations call for the European Commission’s review of the Directive’s implementation to prioritize scrutiny of its impact on human rights.
