Spain: Briefing to Committee against Torture, November 2009
This briefing summarizes some of Amnesty International’s main concerns about Spain’s failure to implement some of its obligations under the Convention against Torture. Amnesty International is concerned by the lack of investigation of allegations; by actions to forcibly return individuals and by legal measures which fail to provide adequate protection and reparation to women. The briefing also addresses failings in the implementation of the principle of universal jurisdiction, and concludes with information on the investigations into enforced disappearances which took place during the Spanish civil war and during the Franco dictatorship.
