International Day in Support of Victims of Torture

Torture aims to take away the victim’s personality and their dignity. The United Nations has condemned torture by human beings on their fellow human beings.

Torture is a crime under international law. It is absolutely prohibited and cannot be justified under any circumstances. The systematic or widespread practice of torture constitutes a crime against humanity.
On 12 December 1997, by resolution 52/149, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 26 June the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, with a view to the total eradication of torture and the effective functioning of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, (resolution 39/46), which entered into force on 26 June 1987.
