International Day in Support of Victims of Torture

"Torture is a crime that can target anyone through different forms and in different settings, and all victims of torture, including those who are unacknowledged, neglected or overlooked, are at the forefront of our policy," High Representative Federica Mogherini claimed on behalf of the EU, on the occasion of the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, reiterating its strongest opposition to any kind of acts of torture worldwide.

“We will keep mobilising all our means to protect all those that have been and continue to be exposed to this abhorrent human rights violation and stand by all those who very courageously engage against this crime through awareness raising, engagement in civil society organisations or support to victims.” On the occasion of the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, the EU reaffirms once again its strongest commitment to prevent, condemn and eradicate all forms of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
