UN: Moroccan lawyer heads CED

Moroccan jurist Mohammed Ayat, who has served as vice-chair of the United Nations Committee on Enforced Disappearances (CED) since 2017, was elected in Geneva, by acclamation, to head the Committee.

This election comes after the renewal of the composition of the Committee after the election of five new members at the end of the work of the 5th meeting of the States Parties to the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons against Enforced Disappearances, held last June At New York.

The choice of the Moroccan member of this committee is a renewed recognition of the role of the Kingdom as a major player in the development and negotiation of this Convention.

It also illustrates Morocco’s credibility on one of the most important issues dealt with by the special procedures of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
