Tajikistan: Shattered lives: Torture and other ill-treatment in Tajikistan
In Tajikistan people can be picked up off the streets, detained without formal charges, and subjected to torture or other ill-treatment by police and national security officials. Deaths after torture or other ill-treatment are not investigated effectively. Officials are rarely punished and victims have no access to effective remedy and reparation. This report calls on the authorities in Tajikistan at all levels to comply with the country’s obligations under international human rights law and to swiftly implement specific measures to end torture and other ill-treatment.
