UN Experts on Torture Prevention to visit Belize

UN experts on torture prevention will visit Belize in 2018. The decision to visit these countries was taken during this month’s session of the Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture. The Un Experts will travel to Belize to assess the treatment of people deprived of their liberty and measures taken for their protection against torture and ill-treatment. Under the SPT’s mandate, members may make unannounced visits to any place where people are or may be deprived of their liberty, including prisons, police stations, centres for migrants, security services, interrogation facilities and psychiatric hospitals. In addition, the SPT also provides advice to national authorities on the establishment of a monitoring body, known as a National Preventive Mechanism (NPM) that monitors all places where people are or could be deprived of their liberty. The exact date for the visit will be announced next month
