Friday, May 31, 2013

The APT is concerned about acts of torture denounced in the prison of San Martín, Cordoba, Argentina. These events were investigated by the new Unit against Institutional Violence at the Public Ministry.

In a press release we urge the authorities of the Province of Cordoba to investigate the allegations and establish an independent local torture prevention body for regular monitoring of all places of detention in the province.
