Friday, March 10, 2017

Eleven national and international NGOs – including the APT - call on Mexican parliamentarians to promptly adopt the anti-torture legislation, which is being examined by the Congress.

In an open letter, the organisations highlight the need to ensure that the legislation is fully compliant with international standards, in particular the UN Convention against Torture and its Optional Protocol.
