On the 14th anniversary of 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attacks, the International Centre against Terrorism in Geneva emphasised the issue of China impeding the United Nations’ attempt to identify global terrorists.

A panel of specialists from many nations attended an important meeting on “Let’s raise the voices of victims united after 14 Years of Remembrance and Tribute to Victims of Mumbai Terrorist Attacks.”

The panellists emphasised the need of international criminal justice and state collaboration in the rehabilitation of terrorist victims.

According to the press release, lack of collaboration and mutual legal support, as in the case of Pakistani Jihadist militant Sajid Mir, whom China opposed in the Security Council in order to save him from being banned by the UN.

Pratik Dattani, Director of the Bridge India Foundation in London; Prof K Warikoo, Secretary General of the Himalayan Research and Cultural Foundation in Delhi; Stephane Michot, President of IDEAL International in Paris; Priyajit Debsarkar, Author and geopolitical analyst in London; and Fazul Rahman Afridi, Human rights defender were among the panellists at the Khyber Institute in France.

Director of the International Centre Against Terrorism Biro Diawara served as the event’s chairman and coordinator.

A 12-minute clip on the Mumbai attacks was presented before the gathering began. According to the announcement, participants conducted a minute of silence in commemoration of the victims.

The entire panel discussed the tragedies of terrorism and unanimously condemned the act. There were 29 foreign nationals among the fatalities.
