This submission to the UN Human Rights Committee, authored by REDRESS is collaboration with other civil society organisations, outlines key concerns in relation to Kenya’s adherence to the prohibition of torture. This submission may be used by the Committee to frame the list of questions Kenya should address in its upcoming report to the Committee. We highlight the need for Kenya to adopt the Prevention of Torture Bill, which includes a comprehensive definition of torture in line with the UN Convention against Torture, and renders all acts of torture punishable by appropriate penalties. Kenya must also be encouraged effectively investigate the 2007-2008 post-election violence, and address the ongoing impunity of perpetrators by removing domestic obstacles preventing victims from obtaining justice and reparation.
