From 8 to 10 November 2006, the Committee against Torture (Committee) is scheduled to examine Burundi's initial report on the implementation of its obligations under the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (Convention against Torture). This briefing summarizes Amnesty International's concerns with regards to Articles 1, 2, 4, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 of the Convention against Torture, which the organization believes have been breached by Burundi.
