This report was submitted to the United Nations Human Rights Committee in March 2013. It concludes that measures taken by Peru to prevent and combat torture have been inadequate. This includes the lack of a national registry of complaints for acts of torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, the lack of effective investigations, and the lack of prosecutions for torture. A number of factors contribute to this worrying trend such as the lack of protection for victims, and the lack of independence and impartiality of investigations into torture. As highlighted in this section, victims of torture in Peru have not received adequate reparation. This also applies to Peru’s administrative reparation programme which, among other issues, fails to take into account the individual circumstances of each victim’s case.
