إعلان الممثلة العليا للاتحاد الأوروبي فيدريكا موغيريني بمناسبة اليوم الدولي لمساندة ضحايا التعذيب، 26 حزيران/يونيو 2018

On the occasion of the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, the European Union reaffirms once again its strongest commitment to prevent, condemn and eradicate all forms of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. Despite the absolute prohibition of torture under international law, it continues to be practiced around the world either in isolated cases or systematically, through different forms. Torture can target everyone – men, women, and children. Torture is an inexcusable crime for which each perpetrator has to be prosecuted and brought in front of justice.

À l’occasion de la Journée internationale pour le soutien aux victimes de la torture, l’Union européenne réaffirme une nouvelle fois qu’elle attache la plus haute importance à la prévention, à la condamnation et à l’élimination de toutes les formes de torture et des autres peines ou traitements cruels, inhumains ou dégradants. Malgré l’interdiction absolue dont elle fait l’objet conformément au droit international, la torture continue d’être pratiquée dans le monde, ponctuellement ou systématiquement, sous différentes formes. Elle peut cibler toute personne – homme, femme ou enfant. La torture est un crime inexcusable dont chaque auteur doit être poursuivi et traduit devant la justice.
