COMMITTEE AGAINST TORTURE
Under article 13 of the Convention “States parties shall ensure that any individual who alleges he has been subjected to torture in any territory under its jurisdiction has the right to complain to, and to have his case promptly and impartially examined by, its competent authorities. Steps shall be taken to ensure that the complainant and witnesses are protected against all ill-treatment or intimidation as a consequence of his complaint or any evidence given”.
To monitor this provision, the Committee has designated rapporteurs to follow-up on any allegations of reprisals under the Convention.
