The Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture held its 17th session from 18 to 22 June 2012. The visiting programme for 2012 reflects the SPT’s endeavour to move towards greater effectiveness. Senegal should be reviewed at the end of 2012.
The SPT intends to adapt its visits to focus on particular elements of its mandate. To do this, collaboration with NGOs has been enhanced.
To this end, FIACAT and ACAT Senegal have submitted a report on places of detention and the implementation of the national preventative mechanism. The stated objective of the SPT is to meet members of ACAT Senegal and other organisations during its visit in order to best understand realities in the field.
