My candidacy to the Committee for the Prevention of Torture


I am on the shortlist of three persons the Italian Parliamentary Delegation to the Council of Europe proposes for the vacancy of Italian member of the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture. The shortlist came out of a vote held on February 24th, after a series of hearings with the candidates.

Now, the final choice will be made by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe with an absolute majority vote on the basis of list of names prepared by the Bureau of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

The European Committee for the Prevention of Torture examines the treatment of persons who have been deprived of their liberty through inspections in the 47 CoE Member States, in order to prevent cases of torture and inhumane and degrading treatments.
