Republic of Slovenia: before the UN Committee against Torture

On 5 and 6 May 2003 the Committee against Torture examined Slovenia’s second report on measures taken to give effect to the rights enshrined in the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. This briefing summarizes Amnesty International’s concerns with regards to Articles 1, 2, 3, 4, 12, 13, 14 and 16 of the Convention against Torture, which the organization believes have either been breached or not fully implemented by Slovenia. In addition it gives an overview of the subjects of concern to the Committee as expressed in the Committee’s Conclusions and Recommendations, issued on 14 May 2003. It includes concerns regarding the principle of non-refoulement.
