Czech Republic: Anti-torture unit urges a “definitive end” to surgical castration of sex offenders.

Anti-torture experts want Czech authorities to put “a definitive end” to the surgical castration of sex offenders.

The authors of a new report from the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) are worried by the routine use of strip searches in police stations and want better care for poverty-stricken prisoners and those with learning disabilities.

Allegations that inmates with learning disabilities were forced “by custodial staff to dance, bark, eat grass and drink water from a bucket,” are contained in the CPT report, published today.
