APT - Prevention of torture and ill-treatment in police custody

Prevention of torture and ill-treatment in police custody

What are the risks for ill-treatment and torture when a person is arrested by the police? In this short video Lowell Goddard, UN Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture, and General Charbel Mattar, adviser on human rights and torture to the Lebanese government, discuss critical moments of police detention and why independent monitoring prevents abuse. The video was produced in connection to the launch of APT’s new publication Monitoring Police Custody: a practical guide.
