• EU REITERATES COMMITMENT TO END TORTURE

    0

    THE European Union (EU) reiterated its commitment to promote human rights and to eliminate torture during the “End Torture” forum held in Makati City on Thursday. “Torture is not only a tragedy for its victims—it is also degrading for those who perpetrate it, and inevitably it harms the welfare of societies which tolerate such outrages,” said EU Ambassador Guy Ledoux as the world commemorates International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. “While a significant improvement to the legal environment in torture prevention in the Philippines through the enactment of the Anti-Torture Law in 2009 can be noted, much still needs to be done to implement it and hold those responsible for torture cases accountable,” he added.
