altThis Year Theme: TORTURE IN ANY FORM IS A CRIME.  PREVENT TORTURE
26-June-2016, Sunday, New Delhi  :-
International community annually commemorates the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. Every 26 June providing an opportunity for human rights defenders and survivors to speak out against the crime of torture and to remember and support victims and survivors of torture throughout the world.
The NCHRO on Sunday joined the worldwide observance of the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. In India this year, the NCHRO have adopted the theme: ‘TORTURE IN ANY FORM IS A CRIME.  PREVENT TORTURE.”
The focus this year is on "PREVENT TORTURE" since Torture is flourishing because rather than respecting the law by refusing to tolerate torture, governments are either actively using torture, or turning a blind eye and lying about it to their own people and to the world. Torture is widely used  as a weapon against dissent, creating a climate of fear.
Although the scale of torture varies among states, a systemic culture of impunity in which perpetrators are rarely punished and justice for victims is elusive is common to all. Perpetrators tend to be powerful state actors including police, military, and security personnel. Leaders fail to condemn these horrific crimes. Judges and police lack the capacity—or the will—to pursue torturers. Victims are isolated and have no trusted, safe place to report torture. And those who pursue justice, accountability, and redress often face the threat of reprisals.
