Although Tunisia has made considerable progress in terms of human rights and the rule of law since the 2011 revolution, a great deal of legislative, institutional and political reforms must still be undertaken. Until this day, the state of emergency that started in 2015 still applies in the country, the Constitutional Court hasn’t been established yet, and police abuse is still taking place in police stations and prisons. Impunity continues for the crime of torture. There is no political will to date to hold accountable torture perpetrators amongst the security forces. The OMCT Tunisia office - through its SANAD program - works to provide psychological, medical, social, and legal assistance to victims of torture and ill-treatment. We are also working on institutional building through partnerships with State institutions and advocacy.
