The UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture was initiated in 1997. The UN cites torture as a crime under international law, absolutely prohibited regardless or whether or not a country has ratified international treaties in which torture is expressly forbidden. As such, systematic torture by a country is a crime against humanity.”
