Govt Under Pressure To Ratify Treaty Against Torture

: 08/11/2017 - 10:36

The Government's coming under pressure to ratify a treaty against torture after committing to it 10 years ago.

The issue's expected to be highlighted in a series of recommendations being published today by the United Nation's Committee against Torture.

The treaty allows for protection against ill treatment not only in prisons but care homes, hostels and police stations.

Executive Director of The Irish Penal Reform Trust, Fíona Ní Chinnéide says the Government agreed to ratify the OPCAT in October 2007.
