update:March 03,2020
March 3,2020 -- The on-going 43rd session of the UN Human Rights Council held talks Friday among Special Rapporteurs on cruel torture. Liu Hua, Special Representative for Human Rights of China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that China has submitted reports on the implementation of the Convention Against Torture for sixth times and conducted dialogues with The Committee Against Torture, which shows China’s firm resolution against cruel torture.
Many of Chinese laws including criminal law, criminal procedure law, and laws and regulations on detention facilities have established provisions on the prohibition of cruel torture. In particular, the amended criminal procedure law stipulates that no one can be forced to plead guilty and the extortion of confessions through torture is forbidden.
Surveillance cameras are set up in law enforcement places and interrogation rooms to prevent extortion of confessions through torture. We will make people feel fairness and justice in every judicial case, said Liu.
