Montenegro: Failure to Implement International Law: Amnesty International Submission for the UN Universal Periodic Review – 29th Session of the UPR Working Group, January 2018

This submission was prepared for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Montenegro in January 2018. Amnesty International is concerned about inadequate implementation of treaty obligations, such as failing to include a definition of torture in national law in line with the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment; the limited authority of the National Preventive Mechanism; and weak implementation of a flawed anti-discrimination legal framework; impunity for crimes under international law, including enforced disappearance; restrictions on the media and impunity for attacks on journalists; torture and other ill-treatment; and excessive use of force in the context of public order policing.
