The Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review Working group holds it 26th session.

The Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review Working group holds its 26th session from 31 October until 11 November 2016 in order to examine the situation of human rights in eleven countries: Togo, Syrian Arab Republic, Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of), Iceland, Zimbabwe, Lithuania, Uganda, Timor-Leste, Republic of Moldova, Haiti and South Sudan.

26th session agenda

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.
