Germany: Legal provisions and political practices put persons at risk of human rights violations
In this submission, prepared for the UN Universal Periodic Review, Amnesty International expresses concern regarding Germany’s inadequately resourced national preventative mechanism to combat and prevent torture; and about the use of diplomatic assurances to return individuals suspected of involvement in terrorism to states where they would face a real risk of torture or other ill-treatment. The submission also highlights concerns regarding the treatment of refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants; and about the inadequacy of investigations into alleged human rights violations by police.
