the Night Prayer Vigil 2018
Against Torture

ACAT asserts that torture is never legitimate and that the dignity of all persons must be respected without any exception. ACAT therefore defends all victims of torture and ill treatment, whoever prisoners of conscience or common law, whether they are detained by states or non-state entities, whether they have committed reprehensible actions or not. ACAT does not make ideological, ethnic or religious differences.
