Mauritania: Submission to the UN Committee against Torture

, Índice: AFR 38/001/2013

In this briefing Amnesty International highlights the systematic use of torture and other ill-treatment as a method of investigation by security forces during the early stages of detention in official and unofficial places of detention, the deplorable conditions of detention in several prisons and the recourse to enforced disappearance. This situation is encouraged by the fact that the alleged perpetrators of these acts are almost never brought to justice. The briefing also outlines cases of enforced disappearances and lack of access to lawyers, family members and medical assistance.
