Torture and Ill-treatments in Detention Centers in Afghanistan 1394
Freedom from torture and other inhumane treatments and punishments is an inalienable right of all human beings. Human rights international documents have officially recognized this right and its unconditional observance have been emphasized by these documents. Similarly, this right is guaranteed and protected by the domestic laws of most countries, including the Constitution of Afghanistan. The Constitution of Afghanistan emphasizes on the observance of human rights international documents, particularly the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, as well as Civil and Political Rights Convention, which prohibits torture and punishment of individuals and guarantees the right to freedom from torture without any limitation.
