REDRESS’ submission to the UN Human Rights Committee’s review of the UK’s compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The submission focuses on three key issues raised in the UN’s List of Issues prior to the submission of the eighth periodic report. The first addresses the criminalisation of torture, emphasizing the need for universal jurisdiction. The second highlights the UK’s involvement in torture and rendition, urging a prompt and impartial investigation into allegations of collusion. The third underscores the importance of non-refoulement, expressing grave concerns about recent legislative developments, particularly the Illegal Migration Act 2023 and the proposed Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill.
