World Human Rights Day: A Pivotal Moment in Human History

December 10th is World Human Rights Day, commemorating the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. This day serves as a reminder that human rights are universal, nonnegotiable, and the duty of states to protect. The Cyprus Police has taken proactive measures to uphold human rights, including establishing specialized offices, issuing guidelines, improving detention facilities, and providing education and awareness programs for officers.
