From May 16 to June 26, 2022, the Civil Society Coalition against Torture and Impunity in Tajikistan will hold a traditional campaign commemorating the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, which is celebrated annually on June 26.

During this period the following thematic activities are planned as part of the campaign:

  • Placing quotes from the President and other government officials condemning the use of torture and ill-treatment on billboards in the capital;
  • Conducting radio broadcasts on freedom from torture;
  • Presentation of a book about torture victims “Broken destiny, lives taken away”, mobile application “Me and My Rights!” and holding of a photo exhibition in Dushanbe;
