Council of Europe anti-torture Committee publishes report on Denmark

The main objective of the visit was to assess the progress made since the CPT’s previous visit in 2014. In this context, the CPT’s delegation paid particular attention to the safeguards against police ill-treatment as well as to the situation in prisons and establishments for detained migrants, notably in respect of treatment, material conditions and health care. In addition, the delegation visited the Secure Department of Slagelse Psychiatric Hospital.

The findings and conclusions of the CPT are set out in the executive summary of the report.
