In 2017, the OMCT and its SOS-Torture Network member XXX achieved a landmark victory at the Indian Supreme Court on behalf of victims of extrajudicial killings. Its Fund for Urgent assistance for victims of torture provided medical, legal, and social assistance to 92 victims in 16 countries.
A new global initiative, called Civil society united against torture, focused on support for OMCT’s 200+ SOS-Torture Network members in situations of closing space, while ensuring that victim
assistance continues to be provided, and amplifying members’ voices from Turkey to the Philippines, from Burundi to Guatemala and across countries of the former Soviet Union.
