Speech by the Minister of Justice at the High Level International Conference on Human Rights, Civil Society and Counter-Terrorism

Terrorism, in all its forms and manifestations is one of the most serious threats to the rule of law, to freedom and security, to international peace and safety and to fundamental rights of citizens and a violation of the universal values of human dignity, freedom, equality, and solidarity.

The purposes of terrorism could not be, under any circumstances, legitimized for any reasons, be it political, philosophical, ideological, racial, ethnic, religious or others. Its effects have an extremely wide harmful potential and with overwhelming repercussions for citizens. and for the States. They cause enormous suffering to individuals and their families and affect innocent victims.

The transnational nature of this phenomenon and its global character, as well as its growing complexity, using increasingly sophisticated means, call for an increasingly consistent, systematic, proactive and structured fight, based on repression, anticipation and in prevention.

Indeed, the terrorist threat has grown and evolved rapidly in recent years, demanding an effective and particularly targeted response from States.
