Some information about this day:

 

The United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment is an international human rights instrument, under the review of the United Nations that aims to prevent torture around the world. The Convention came into force on 26 June 1987 and since then 26 June is being recognised as the International Day in Support of Torture Victims.

The Convention against Torture was ratified by Lebanonin 2000.

The United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, on 26 June, reminds us that torture is a crime and provides us with an opportunity to stand united  against this cruel violation of human rights.
