International Campaign for the Absolute Prohibition of Torture and Ill-treatment


The absolute prohibition of torture is under attack, and public opinion is putting up with it.  This deviation from the international norm is a negation of the dignity of the human person.

Nobel Peace Prize laureates Martti Ahtisaari, Kofi Annan, Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio, Rigoberta Menchú, José Ramos-Horta, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Joseph Stiglitz, Desmond Tutu and Jimmy Carter have signed the OMCT Manifesto, "Nothing can justify torture under any circumstances".

Kofi Annan and Sandrine Salerno, Mayor of Geneva, formally signed the Manifesto on 23 June 2010 to mark the launching of an international campaign to alert everyone to the dangers which a society that tolerates torture risks.
