Anti-Torture Initiative returns from outreach visit in Tunisia

The Center’s Anti-Torture Initiative (ATI) recently returned from a trip to the Republic of Tunisia to assess the progresses achieved and the challenges remaining regarding the implementation of the recommendations issued by the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, Professor Juan Mendez after his 2011 visit to Tunisia. During the 7 day visit the ATI team visited Tunis and Sfax and met with more than 20 local and international non-governmental organizations to discuss the situation of torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment in the country.
