Human rights in Belgium : application of the Convention against Torture and other cruel, in human or degrading treatment or punishment

ASSEDEL has submitted a report to the United Nations Committee against Torture on a number of worrying Human rights violations in Belgium, and more specifically on a number of situations that appear to be in contradiction with the application of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
