Between March 13 and 16, Mr. Filippo Musca, Deputy Director of the Siracusa International Institute for Criminal Justice and Human Rights, attended the fifth session of the Training of Trainers Program (ToT) for Egyptian judges, prosecutors and officers of the Technical Office of the Court of Cassation in Cairo.
The ToT Program is one of the most considerable activities of the Siracusa International Institutes’ three-year Technical Assistance Project in Egypt, which is mainly aimed at fostering the effective functioning of the justice sector in the country and at enhancing the promotion of the rule of law and human rights. The project was launched in 2014 with the support of the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).
The fifth session of the ToT Program started with the opening ceremony which was also attended by Counsellor Ahmed Abu Zayd, Vice President of the Court of Cassation and head of the International Cooperation Department, and by Counsellor Cherif Atlam, Chief Justice at the Cairo Court of Appeal and the Siracusa International Institute’s National Project Coordinator. This activity involved 31 participants and was mainly focused on the presentation and evaluation of selected judges of the Court of Cassation and selected members of the Court’s technical office.
The next session of the Program will be held between April 15 and 21 at the Institute’s headquarters.
