26th June is the International Day in support of Victims of Torture. It is a day set aside globally by Amnesty international to take action in solidarity for torture victims and survivors all over the world and more particularly for the five key cases that we are campaigning on. Last year, over one million Amnesty International members mobilized online and offline actions across the five countries of focus.  These actions and the level of global activism have contributed hugely to progress in the cases that we targeted in the campaign.  This year, we would like to work together with you to increase this impact, engagement and activism to show your solidarity for torture victims and survivors all over the world.

Five Countries with Highest Torture cases for this year campaign are as shown below

  • MOROCCO        – Stop the prosecution of those who report torture
  • MEXICO           – Improve medical examinations of torture
  • UZBEKISTAN – Outlaw confessions extracted through torture
  • PHILIPPINES    – Improve accountability mechanisms
  • NIGERIA             – Access to lawyers to detention centres

The objective of the Campaign is to:

  • Show solidarity for victims of torture;
  • Call for an end to torture;
  • Call on Law Makers to put in place effective safeguards to prevent torture and ultimately eradicate this barbaric practice.
  • Promote Amnesty’s global petitions focused on the five priority cases

It is in line with this, that Dotun Roy’s Blog in collaboration with Connected Development (CODE) and Dorothy Njemanze Foundation (DNF) being members of Amnesty International will be taking the lead in campaigning against the use of torture in FCT, Abuja with the ultimate objective of positively influencing the policy towards the protection of the fundamental human rights of every Nigerian and across the world.
