Nothing can justify torture – OMCT Campaign

Torture and ill-treatment continue to occur all over the world and these human rights violations remain too often unpunished. Torture can affect any man, woman and child. It can take many features and can be inflicted in the name of national security or counter-terrorism, in the fight against organised crime or drug cartels or to repress social protests. But in the large majority of cases it is used against persons detained on ordinary criminal charges, notably to extract confession or obtain information, and disproportionally on those belonging to minorities, marginal groups or the poor.

This video calls on people to speak out against torture under the motto “Nothing can justify torture under any circumstances”.

Anyone, anywhere can do something to support the global fight against torture and ill-treatment.
