Civil society Coalition against torture and impunity in Tajikistan (2016 Annual Report)

The Civil Society Coalition against Torture and Impunity in Tajikistan (Coalition) was established in September 2011 to consolidate the efforts of civil society to combat torture and impunity in Tajikistan. The Coalition facilitated opening of the public debate about torture in Tajikistan and influenced positive changes within legislation policy and practice with regards to prevention and investigation of this crime, as well as provision of reparation to the victims. However, despite this progress, five years later torture remains a serious problem in Tajikistan’s detention facilities and a lot remains to be done to eliminate it.
