HUMAN RIGHTS ACT -
TORTURE and MENTAL TORTURE
Article 3 of the European Convention
of Human Rights prohibits torture, and "inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment". There are no exceptions or limitations on this right.
This provision usually applies, apart from torture, to cases of severe police violence and poor conditions in detention. The European Court of Human Rights has further held that this provision prohibits the extradition of a person to a foreign state if they are likely to be subjected there to torture. This article has been interpreted as prohibiting a state from extraditing an individual to another state if they are likely to suffer the death penalty. This article does not, however, on its own forbid a state from imposing the death penalty within its own territory.
"Article 3 – Prohibition of torture"
No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
