Togo ratified the OPCAT in July 2010. This represented a significant breakthrough in the country’s journey to reducing the risks of torture in places of detention. Since then, we have supported the National Human Rights Commission, designated as the country’s National Preventive Mechanism, during a reform process to enable the Commission to carry out its mandate effectively.
