Project Prometheus is joining forces with Amnesty International against tortureĀ 

Project Prometheus has welcomed the new, strong and worldwide campaign against torture that is launched by Amnesty International. Sadly, 30 years after the signing of the UN Convention against Torture (1984) there is still the need for absolute condemnation of such practices that continue to be a daily nightmare for countless men, women and children. Embracing the principle that prevention is preferable to treatment, we join voices with Amnesty International for the immediate and irrevocable condemnation of torture worldwide.

For the relevant press release by Amnesty International-Greece and for more information, please click here.

Check also here and here, the results of the research conducted in 21 countries by Amnesty International on attitudes to torture. Greece also participated in the survey, with the extremely high percentage of 57% of Greeks not feeling safe from torture in the event of custody or imprisonment!

How safe do you feel and what should change in your opinion?
