European Parliament set to vote on new regulation to stop trade in torture equipment


"‘This vote is an opportunity for the EU to send the message that it will not tolerate torture’ - Ara Marcen Naval

The European Parliament should vote in favour of measures strengthening the European Union’s landmark regulation combating the trade in equipment that can be used to torture, ill-treat or execute people, said Amnesty International and the Omega Research Foundation today.

Final amendments to the new torture trade regulation - known formally as Regulation (EC) 1236/2005, as accepted by the EU Council - will be debated and voted on by the European Parliament tomorrow."
