ICJ submission to the Committee Against Torture on the third periodic report of Iceland

In its submissions to the Committee Against Torture, the ICJ draws attention to the lack of a definition of torture in Icelandic law equivalent to that in Article 1 of the Convention Against Torture.

The ICJ also points out the lack of specific criminal law offences of torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, raising issues under Articles 2 and 4 of the Convention.
