The United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture – 26 June is a vital day in commemoration of all the victims of torture worldwide. On this day, we take the opportunity to raise awareness of torture and its terrible consequences, not only for the victims and their families but also for society as a whole. It is also a day of celebration, as the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment entered into force 26 June 1987. The Convention is one of the most efficient legal instruments against the use of torture and in particular it acknowledges the victims’ right to reparation.
