Youth Group Activity Pack - September 2015: Stop the trade in torture equipment
As a result of concerns raised by Amnesty International and others, the European Union (EU) introduced specific laws to restrict the trade in torture equipment in 2005. But there are loopholes (gaps in the law) that mean certain types of trade or certain categories of torture equipment continue to be traded. The EU is currently reviewing the law banning the trade in equipment used for torture and the death penalty and we have a unique opportunity to close these loopholes.
