BICI Recommendation 1722 (a) (Implemented)
Investigations and Government Accountability ...
To conduct effective investigations in accordance with the Principles on the Effective Prevention and Investigation of Extra-Legal, Arbitrary and Summary Executions of all the deaths that have been attributed to the security forces. Likewise, all allegations of torture and similar treatment be investigated by an independent and impartial body, following the Istanbul Principles. The investigation of both types of alleged violation should be capable of leading to the prosecution of the implicated individuals, both direct and at all levels of responsibility, with a view to ensuring that punishment be consistent with the gravity of the offence.

Progress & Actions

Implemented

The External Legal Experts have advised that the AG can fulfil the role of the “independent and impartial body”, provided there is sufficient training on conducting effective investigations. To that end GoB has agreed an extensive programme of training for prosecutors with the International Institute of Higher Studies in Criminal Sciences (ISISC), based on Syracusa (more details below in recommendation 1722(f)); the programme will be delivered by an experienced Arab speaking faculty, with examples drawn from BICI.
