It is a pleasure to join you this evening to launch this very useful tool, the Practical Guide to Detention Monitoring. I would first like to thank the Association for the Prevention of Torture and Advocacy Forum for organizing this event. I appreciate the opportunity for OHCHR- Nepal to be a partner in this initiative.
Human dignity is at the heart of human rights, and there is no greater affront to human dignity than torture. 10 December 2008 is the 60th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the foundation of international human rights law.
Article 5 of the UDHR states, “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.” Successive human rights treaties have built on this provision; however, despite the comprehensive international legal framework that exists to confront torture, much remains to be done to ensure that the use of torture and ill-treatment ceases.
