Líbano

De un vistazo

After its ratification of the Convention against Torture in 2000, Lebanon waited 18 years to finally criminalize torture in its legislation. In practice however, the law has failed to prevent the use of torture by law enforcement and security forces. Reports show that hundreds of people, including children, are still tortured during investigations or in places of detention, sometimes leading to death in custody. Without a proper implementation of the law, Lebanon’s efforts to combat this crime are reduced and the culture of impunity is bound to persist. The OMCT works to pressure the authorities to fully implement the anti-torture law.
