Fight against torture: “Are we doing enough?”

“Torture is a man-made disaster,” said Felicitas Treue, co-founder of Colectivo Contra la Tortura y la Impunidad, a Mexican organization that provides support to torture victims. “Wherever it takes place it is an emergency situation, because it represents an immediate threat and direct attack against the victim, their family and community.”
 
Treue made her comments during a public meeting on the issue of redress to victims of torture organised by the UN Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture. The meeting, which took place in Geneva, brought together expert practitioners in the in the field torture victims and the Fund’s Trustees to exchange knowledge and best practices.

After decades of sustained and unrestrained anti-foreigner abuse and misinformation, and in the wake of a recent article in the Sun newspaper calling migrants “cockroaches,” High Commissioner Zeid urges the U.K. authorities, media and regulatory bodies to take steps to curb incitement to hatred by British tabloid newspapers.

EU must seek durable solutions to migrant issues
The decision made Thursday by EU leaders overwhelmingly continues to focus on the securitization of borders. Increasing repression of survival migration has not worked in the past and will not work now, UN human rights experts warn.

Journalists detained in Ethiopia
The detention of the six so-called “Zone Nine” bloggers and three other journalists in Ethiopia over the past year has been “absolutely unacceptable” and particularly worrying as the country prepares to hold parliamentary elections on May 24, say two UN rights experts.

Unequal treatment
Denmark did not treat a refugee with a mental disability equally before the law, when it refused, without giving a reason, to exempt him from the language requirement for citizenship, UN experts find.

Exposure to toxic substances
“Every minute, a person dies from exposure to toxic substances at work... We should, and can, stop this preventable disaster,” says the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and hazardous substances and wastes, ahead of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work, on April 28.
