An ACAT exists in Togo. Therefore, FIACAT particularly follows this review. FIACAT in collaboration with ACAT-Togo has contributed to this process by submitting an alternative report.
FIACAT and ACAT Togo wish to draw attention to a number of concerns. These concerns relate mainly to the insufficient incrimination of torture in the Togolese Criminal Code, detention conditions, in particular prison overcrowding and the lack of access to healthcare and food, and on the extent of the phenomenon of popular vindictiveness.
