Petition to end the use of torture in Tajikistan
In Tajikistan the police and security forces frequently resort to torture and other ill-treatment to obtain confessions. Many victims of torture in pre-trial detention are left with physical and psychological injuries requiring long-term treatment; some die in custody. Those who do survive often end up in prison after an unfair trial.
In November 2012 the President of Tajikistan declared that torture would not be tolerated. As he stands for the next Presidential Elections in November 2013, ask him now to stand by his promise and put human rights at the heart of his campaign by creating a torture-free zone in Tajikistan.
