31st Session - 2016 March, ALRC AT THE UN, Commission on Human Rights, indonesia, Written Submissions
1. The Asian Legal Resource Centre (ALRC) wishes to draw the attention of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to the fact that torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment continues to recur widely in Indonesia. Although Indonesia is a state party to the International Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT), with the promulgation of Law No. 5 of 1998, torture remains routine, with only a few perpetrators being lightly punished.
