Tunisia elected member of African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights

Tunisia was elected a member of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights of the African Union for a 6-year-term (2017 – 2023). It will be represented by Hatem Sayem.

This election took place during the meeting held Friday in Addis Ababa on the sidelines of the 31st session of the executive council of the African Union (AU), according to a Foreign Ministry press release.

“This success will strengthen Tunisia’s presence in the AU’s structures and institutions, including the African Commission on International Law and the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights,” the same source specified.

This election will also affirm Tunisia’s good reputation in the field of human rights with the international community, especially after its election to the UN Human Rights Council and the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances (WGEID).

Hatem Sayem previously served as Tunisia’s ambassador to Beirut, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Tehran. He also served as Secretary-General of Africa and Director of Consular Affairs at the Foreign Ministry.
