Key recommendations on the right to rehabilitation:

51. In the light of its previous recommendation under the inquiry procedure (see A/69/44, annex XIII, para. 38 (dd)), the State party should ensure that all victims of torture and ill-treatment obtain redress, including an enforceable right to fair and adequate compensation, and the means of achieving as full a rehabilitation as possible. The Committee draws the State party’s attention to its general comment No. 3 (2012), in which it elaborates on the nature and the scope of States parties’ obligations under article 14 of the Convention to provide full redress to victims of torture.
