New Specialised Institution
Kyrgyzstan ratified the OPCAT in 2008 and established a new specialised institution dedicated to torture prevention as NPM: the National Center for the Prevention of Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
The legislation establishing this new institution and its superior administrative body, the Coordinating Council, was adopted in July 2012 and the NPM started to be operational in March 2014.
The Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture visited Kyrgyzstan in September 2012. The report has been made public.
The SPT member Arman Danielyan is the SPT Focal Point for Kyrgyzstan.
