Fight against terror
Using terrorism is forbidden under French law, International law,
European law and under many regional treaties.
Furthermore, many countries have introduced a ban on terrorism
under their criminal domestic legislation.
Some of these measures take into account the reparation of the
victims as well as their place in the legal proceedings.
However the debate surrounding the definition of terrorism remains
a controversial issue which arouses a range of reactions.
Finally the issue of the responsibility of the heads of state has yet
to be resolved. Even today the jurisdiction at both domestic and
international levels favours granting them complete and absolute immunity.
S.O.S. Attentats fights against this outdated interpretation.
calls on states to decide on a fair and complete
reparation for the victims of terrorism, regardless of their nationality, where the
attack took place and the authors of these acts- in other words without discrimination.
asks states to include the crime of terrorism under the
jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.
With regard to these objectives, S.O.S. Attentats
calls for international solidarity and aims to create a genuine network of associations, uniting victims
of terrorism from all over the world.
