Alternative report submitted to the UN Human Rights Committee

The Public Committee against Torture in Israel was established in 1990 and has
continuously sought to abolish the use of torture in Israel. We protect any individual
harmed during interrogation, demonstration, detention or incarceration; we represent
Israelis, Palestinians, refugees and immigrants who were subjected to torture, or to cruel,
inhuman or degrading treatment at the hands of Israeli authorities.
We at PCATI believe that torture and abuse of any sort – and under any circumstance –
cannot align with morality, democracy and the rule of law. The State of Israel that we
envision and aspire to is free of institutional violence, a place where people whose
bodies and souls were harmed find recognition and justice.
