Condemned but not Deterred: Torture in Sri Lanka

‘Condemned but not Deterred: Torture in Sri Lanka’ is the latest study by Verité Research on the issue of systemic torture and deaths in custody in Sri Lanka.

The Briefing Note focuses on four of the latest judgments on torture and deaths in custody of the Supreme Court with emphasis on key observations made by the court in condemning the State’s inaction in preventing such acts by law enforcement authorities.

It then goes on to identify three crucial issues emanating from the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence, and analyses how these issues impede deterrence and ultimately serve to hinder the meaningful elimination of torture in Sri Lanka.
