Practice Relating to Rule 90. Torture and Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment
In 2001, in its second periodic report to the Committee on the Rights of the Child, Pakistan stated:
Article 14 [of the constitution of Pakistan] states that the “dignity” of man is “inviolable” and that “no person shall be subjected to torture”. Article 11(4) states that no person shall be compelled to do “compulsory service” which is of “a cruel nature or incompatible with human dignity”. Furthermore, articles 9 and 10 speak of the “security of a person” and provide necessary safeguards against arrest and detention.
