The texts of presentations suggested in this publication have been developed as a part of materials on the Prohibition of Torture and Inhuman and Degrading Treatment and Punishment for training of judges and prosecutors in Montenegro. They are designed so to comprise a course with the aim of providing the participants with a profound level of knowledge of Council
of Europe and other international standards closely related to the prohibition of torture and other forms of ill treatment, related judicial, including prosecutorial.
The presentations are supposed to serve as a reference text for future national trainers and participants of relevant trainings carried out within different national professional training frameworks. In combination with the module-specific elements for power point presentation and case studies, tools for practical exercises they are aiming at enhancing the relevant skills of
the participants that are necessary for understanding and application in practice of their duties deriving from the domestic legal framework and overall standards on the issues concerned.
The texts of presentations and related training materials (sample power point presentations and practical exercises) have been prepared by Mr Erik Svanidze, who besides coordinating the exercise drafted presentations and related training materials under Modules 2, 3, 4.1 and 5 of the course, and Mr. Graham Smith, who drafted presentations and related training materials under Modules 1, 4.2 and 6.
