Khulumani Stands for Ending the Impunity of Torturers on International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, 26 June 2014

Ms. Navi Pillay Ms. Navi Pillay

On 26 June 2014, Khulumani will be reaffirming its activism to end the impunity of those who have committed torture in South Africa and in the region.

We endorse the statement of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Ms Navi Pillay as she re-emphasizes the pledge of the United Nations in support of activists "that every victim will one day gain her or his right to acknowledgment, justice and rehabilitation. We speak clearly and loudly so that officials everywhere will hear this message: no act of torture, or use of information extracted by torture, can be tolerated. Then we return to our work to ensure that torture, wherever it takes place, is documented, investigated, prosecuted, and punished, and that reparations are made to the victims – so that they can recover as best they can from the devastating physical trauma and fear that they have endured."

Khulumani's participatory work with its affected member communities focuses on 'seeking a collective truth from the ground on the psychosocial trauma that torture has caused to its victims in a process of recovering the personal, social and historical memory of affected communities to rebuild their identities and their views of the world.'

We commit to the continuing struggle to build a world without torture.

See the attached media statement of Ms Navi Pillay.
