of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) published
today the report on its most recent visit to Romania (5 to 16 September 2010),
together with the response of the Romanian Government. Both documents have been

In this connection, particular attention was paid to the treatment of persons detained by the police and the conditions of detention in a number of police establishments. The Committee also examined in detail various issues related to prisons, in particular the situation of juveniles, life-sentenced prisoners and prisoners classified as “dangerous”.
