ALGIERS-Director of the African Centre for Studies and Research on terrorism (ACSCT), Larry Gbevlo-Lartey Esq on Tuesday underlined the need to find a balance between respect for human rights and counterterrorism.
“We will try to focus on this issue. We must find fair balance between human rights and counterterrorism,” stated Larry on the sidelines of the yearly meeting of ACSCT Focal Points in Algiers, hailing Algeria’s efforts in the establishment of peace and security.
The Algerian Government has become an example to follow by African countries and the whole world in terms of counterterrorism, said the ACSCT official who recalled the role played by President of the Republic, Abdelaziz Bouteflika under counterterrorism coordination within the AU.
“Nowadays, security situation in Algeria is known to all thanks to the wisdom of their leaders who learnt how to combat terrorism,” stated Gbevlo, stressing that Algeria’s experience has become an example to follow by African countries and the whole world.
According to the ACSCT director, the great challenge Algeria has to face consists in some group’s attempts to convey radical messages aimed at propagating extremist ideas.
As regards the situation in Africa, Gbevlo said that the continent still faces difficulties related to religious extremism and radicalization, notably in the Sahel region.
