26 June- UN(inversal) Day Against Torture

26 June 2012 – Rehabilitation works and is a torture survivor's right

The United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, on the 26th of June, gives us the opportunity to stand united and remind the world that torture is a cruel violation of human rights.

Rehabilitation is the theme for the 26 June 2012 campaign. Rehabilitation empowers torture victims to resume as full a life as possible. However, rebuilding the life of someone whose dignity has been destroyed takes time and is the result of long-term material, medical, psychological and social support

ARCT organized an open event in Tirana's Boulevard entitled "They require a grave", dedicated to around 4500 former political persecuted that were executed without a trial during the communist regime. ARCT is the main organization in Albania which has dedicated 16 years of its exsistence to the Cause of the Historical Memories.

This event is part of the June Activities dedicated to the National Campain "ALBANIA WITHOUT TORTURE".


Albania: Torture and ill-treatment in places of detention

Extracts from the ARCT Shadow Report to UN

The Albanian penitentiary system is comprised by 22 penitentiary facilities (pretrial detention and prisons); some inherited from the previous Communist regime and some newly built. While the new facilities have significantly raised the standard for conditions of detention, the remaining 19 old facilities face a series of challenges including problems with material conditions, hygiene and lack of professional staff. These problems are well documented in numerous visit reports by the European Committee on Prevention of Torture (CPT) and are thus well know by the Albanian authorities. The situation in police pretrial facilities is of grave concern with approximately, 25% of detainee’s surveyed by ARCT in 2015 reporting being exposed to violence during arrest or custody.

In addition, various internal police inspection reports have documented unsuitable detention conditions and treatments of detainees in police lockups including: overcrowding and prolonged stays for persons in police custodial cells - sometimes up to 10 days and longer compared to the legal limit of 48 hours, substandard physical conditions, lack of access to health and mental health care, inadequate protection for vulnerable persons, abuse of detainees, poor sanitary conditions, lack of adequate accommodation, and juveniles being held with adults.

Monitoring places of deprivation of liberty (particularly police custodial cells and pretrial detention) re-mains the most important element in ending these violations. In accordance with the Albanian Constitution and national legislation, prisons and police authorities have various internal monitoring mechanism. Since 2010, the institution of People’s Advocate has been functioning as the Albanian National Preventive Mechanism under the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture (OPCAT).
