Torture by Police, Forced Disappearance & Other Ill Treatment
The ordeal of victims of torture endures even when the torture itself has ended. Victims experience many forms of long-term physical and psychological damage as a result of torture and ill treatment.
One element in the solution to the universal practice of torture while in custody will come through education. If this subject can be integrated into secondary school and college curricula, a long-term solution will have begun. Broad-scale awareness achieved through the education of two or three generations is the surest way to induce systemic change. An enlightened society, broadly aware of the nature and scale of police torture, will not allow the practice to continue.
