Today, Deputy Head of Mission, Fenja Yamaguchi-Fasting, delivered a joint statement at the OSCE Permanent Council on behalf of 46 participating States to mark the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.

Like previous years, Switzerland and Denmark took the lead in gathering the broadest possible support for a strong statement reaffirming the unwavering commitment to step up efforts in preventing and eradicating torture and other ill-treatments as well as expressing solidarity with the victims.

The fight against torture has been a long-standing priority for Denmark and we will continue our efforts in ensuring that the topic remains high on the OSCE agenda.
