Abstract

The following commentary analyses four of the most important cases recently decided by the Committee against Torture (‘Committee’) established under the Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment 1984 (CAT). 1 Three cases concern the Committee's first ever findings of torture in individual complaints under CAT, while the other concerns the obligation of a State to exercise universal criminal jurisdiction under CAT.
