Torture around the world

Torture is illegal, doesn’t work, and is always wrong. Yet it happens to people across the world. Using our in-depth evidence of torture, we work with survivors to hold countries who torture to account.

Our evidence of torture comes from medico-legal reports (MLRs). These are highly detailed, forensic descriptions of the physical and psychological injuries a person has suffered, completed by our doctors, clinical staff and lawyers to international human rights standards.

These act as evidence of torture. From this, we are able to build up a picture of what torture looks like in the countries where the people we help come from. 

Be part of a growing movement standing with survivors. We stand up to torturers across the world and stand alongside survivors in defending their rights in the UK. Are you with us?

I'll join the movement!
