In this submission, prepared for the UN Universal Periodic Review, Amnesty International expresses concern regarding Germany’s inadequately resourced national preventative mechanism to combat and prevent torture; and about the use of diplomatic assurances to return individuals suspected of involvement in terrorism to states where they would face a real risk of torture or other ill-treatment. The submission also highlights concerns regarding the treatment of refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants; and about the inadequacy of investigations into alleged human rights violations by police.
