Report to the Italian Government on the visit to Italy carried out by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) from 14 to 18 June 2010, CPT/Inf (2013) 30, 19 November 2013

Published in November 2013, this document contains a Report and a Supplementary Report drafted by the Committee of the European Convention for the Prevention of Torture (CPT), respectively, on 3 December 2010 and on 14 April 2011. Following its previous periodic visit to Italy in 2008, the CPT focused its new Report and recommendations on two particular issues: the suicide prevention in prisons and the transfer of responsibility for prison health care from the central penitentiary administration to the regional health-care authorities. The Supplementary Report deals, in turn, with the adoption of further national measures concerning the accountability for ill-treatment by law enforcement officials and prison officers, including the effectiveness of investigations.
