Moldova is failing to fulfil its obligations under international human rights law to ensure individuals' right to freedom from torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. In this report Amnesty International shows that despite measures taken by the Moldovan government to bring legislation into line with international and European standards, torture and ill-treatment in police custody remain widespread and people who are ill-treated and tortured while detained by the police do not have adequate protection or recourse to justice. The appendix consists of three illustrative cases of alleged torture and other ill-treatment.
