Armenia:Conclusions and recommendations of the UN Committee Against Torture

, Index number: EUR 54/001/2001

The main body of this document outlines the Committee's concerns and recommendations regarding the continuing practice of torture in Armenia. It focuses particularly on the treatment of those held in pre-trial detention, allegations of "hazing" in the army and the death penalty. It also updates Amnesty International's own concerns on these issues, which were detailed earlier this year in the document Armenia - Torture and ill-treatment: Comments on the second periodic report to the United Nations Committee against Torture (AI Index: EUR 54/02/00, April 2000).
