Statement by the Spokesperson on the closure of the Al-Nadeem Center for Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence

The closure, today, of the Al-Nadeem Center for Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence is a development of particular concern.

The Center has played a critical role in treating victims of violence and is an important source of expertise in the field of torture.

The fight against torture is a long standing human rights priority of the European Union and a common objective for all parties to the Convention Against Torture including Egypt.
