Report No. 273

(v) France

2.33 France is committed to combat torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. France has ratified the CAT. France has also signed the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture. It has accordingly set up its national preventive mechanism in the form of a fully independent Controller-General for Places of Deprivation of Liberty, responsible for ensuring that the fundamental rights of detainees are respected.39

2.34 France is also a party to the European Convention for the Prevention of Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment and its protocols. The Convention establishes a European Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) responsible, in the same way as the SPT, for visiting and inspecting places of detention.40
