A representative of the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights, Sylvain Ore, has praised the role of Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court in protecting human rights and freedoms.

Addressing a session on the rights of marginalised categories, refugees and kidnapped children at the African constitutional and supreme courts conference in Cairo, Ore said the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights has been exercising its activities since its establishment in 2004 under the umbrella of the African Union, with the participation of 11 African judges.

He said the court had considered 80 cases and offered six advisories on human rights, political participation and freedom and independence of courts, and called on the participants to take part in a conference which will be organised by the African court in Algeria.

Held under the auspices of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, the Cairo conference aims to foster cooperation among African states and their judicial authorities.

The Supreme Constitutional Court in Egypt was established in 1979.
