Tajikistan: No justice, no protection: Torture and other ill-treatment by law enforcement officials in Tajikistan

By Amnesty International, , Index number: EUR 60/005/2012

Torture and other ill-treatment remain widespread in pre-trial detention facilities in Tajikistan. Despite the Tajikistan government’s declarations that it is committed to improving safeguards for human rights, Amnesty International continues to receive reports about torture and other ill-treatment, harassment, and protracted investigations into the allegations of torture and other ill-treatment. It is time to implement measures urgently in order to bring the practice of torture and other ill-treatment to an end.
