Survivors of Torture Manifesto

Between March and July 2022, REDRESS sought the views of UK-based survivors of torture and their family members in the UK on what justice means to them in practice, why it was important, and what were their key barriers to achieving justice within the UK. Through interviews and conversations with 18 survivors of torture and their family members, the resulting report, ‘Whose Justice? Reflections from UK-based survivors of torture’, identified a series of broad recommendations to the UK Government to improve access to justice, accountability, and reparation for survivors of torture. Through further detailed consultation with survivors between October and December 2022, the following recommendations have been developed and endorsed by survivors.

Open Letter on the Continued Repression of the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights Staff

In this open letter, REDRESS and 19 Egyptian and international non-governmental organisations urge the Embassies of Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States to Egypt, and the European Union Delegation to Egypt, to take action to end the restrictive and arbitrary measures imposed on members of the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights (EIPR). These measures, which include travel bans, asset freezes and unreasonably prolonged judicial investigations, constitute serious violations of the right to freedom of association, and reflect Egypt’s broader attempts to stifle independent civil society.
