Belgium: Before the UN Committee against torture: alleged police ill-treatment.
The United Nations Committee against Torture examined Belgium's initial report on its implementation of the UN Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment on 6 and 7 May 2003. The current document provides a summary of the Committee's conclusions and recommendations, which covered a range of issues, together with the full text of Amnesty International's briefing to the Committee. It also includes a set of recommendations which Amnesty International is calling on the incoming Belgian government to address as a matter of priority, aimed at remedying present inadequacies in safeguards against ill-treatment and preventing the ill-treatment of detainees by police officers, and reflecting the Committee's recommendations in this area
