    AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC STATEMENT
    AI INDEX: AFR 54/8199/2018 9 April 2018

    Background
    Sudan signed the UN Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT) in 1986,1 but more than 30 years later, it is yet to ratify the Convention despite repeated government commitment to do so.
    In May 2016, during Sudan’s Universal Periodic Review at the UN Human Rights Council, the Sudanese government accepted for the second time, recommendations to ratify the Convention and strengthen efforts to prevent torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment (other ill-treatment).2 Sudan had previously accepted similar recommendations during its 2011 review.3 The government also stated that they were taking steps to effect the recommendation to ratify the Convention.4
    Amnesty International welcomes these commitments and encourages Sudan to implement them. By ratifying the Convention against Torture, Sudan will join the vast majority of states – 162 – who are party to this Convention.
    Freedom from torture and other ill-treatment is a universally recognized human right. The absolute prohibition of torture and other ill-treatment is a rule of customary international law that is binding on all nations irrespective of whether or not they have signed the Convention,5 but the Convention provides useful content and detail to this general
