Know your Rights
Drug use is a crime in Lebanon, but you still have rights. Skoun launched its ongoing Know Your Rights campaign in 2013 as a response to police violations during arrest, questionable investigative procedures, and abusive interrogation of people suspected of drug use.
Knowledge is the first step towards empowerment. Know Your Rights aims to firstly educate the public to know their legal rights during arrest, interrogation and legal prosecution, to shed light on the harm caused by police brutality, and question the effectiveness of arresting people for drug use as a means of drug control.
