Thailand: Emergency legislation increases risk of torture whilst restrictions continue on freedom of expression and assembly
Human Rights Council adopts Universal Periodic Review outcome on Thailand. Amnesty International welcomes Thailand’s acceptance of recommendations to criminalise torture and enforced disappearances, to ratify the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, and to create independent bodies under the Ministry of Justice to inspect prisoners in all places of detention and to investigate all torture allegations. The government must promptly implement these recommendations and put in place safeguards against arbitrary detention, torture and other ill-treatment for all detainees without exceptions.
