Denmark: A Briefing for the Committee against Torture
In May 2007, the Committee against Torture is scheduled to examine Denmark's fifth periodic report on its implementation of the Convention against Torture. While welcoming some positive measures which have been taken, the organization considers that additional steps must be taken by Denmark to ensure the full implementation of the Convention against Torture. The present briefing focuses on concerns such as the failure of the Danish Government to incorporate the Convention against Torture into Danish law; prolonged pre-trial solitary confinement; renditions; redress, death in custody and more.
