CPT visits the North Caucasus


A delegation of the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) visited the North Caucasus region of the Russian Federation between 27 April and 6 May 2011. The subsequent report detailing the findings of the visit was published on 24 January 2013, as requested by the Russian Government. The delegation visited the Republic of Dagestan, the Chechen Republic, and the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania and focussed on (1) the treatment of persons detained in law enforcement agencies and (2) reviewing the conditions of detention in the main pre-trial establishments.
