OSCE seminar on the prevention of torture in Azerbaijan

    Baku/26.04.12/Turan: Prevention of torture and inhumane treatment is one of the activities of the OSCE Office in Baku within the framework of promoting rule of law in member countries. With the support of the OSCE, a draft law on the rights of persons detained as suspects or defendants has been prepared.

    "We hope that the bill will be adopted in the final form before the summer," said Monica Martinez, representative of  OSCE Baku, at a joint seminar with the Ombudsman Administration.

    The first reading of the bill, which has already been passed, ensures suspects and accused persons the right to immediately inform their relatives about their detention and access to lawyers.

    Today's event was organized together with the staff of the Ombudsman and was devoted to the National Preventive Mechanism (NPM) against torture.

    "We are convinced that NPM plays an important role in the prevention of torture and ill-treatment. I hope that this workshop helps to strengthen the protection of the rights of persons deprived of their liberty," said the Head of OSCE Office in Baku, Koray Targay.

    In Azerbaijan, the NPM was created two years ago under the Optional Protocol to the UN Convention on the prohibition of torture and inhuman treatment. 

    Ombudswoman Suleymanova said that a special group of 17 people was created for the implementation of NPM.  According to her, the group conducts monitoring of pre-trial detention, detention centers, and penal institutions.

    However, she pointed to the limited financial resources of the group, adding that the issue of state funding for the NPM will be addressed in 2012.
