Recommendations/observations on corporal punishment in the Human Rights Committee's concluding observations to states examined in session 84 (11-29 July 2005)


(18 July 2005, CCPR/CO/84/TJK, Concluding observations on initial report, para. 23)

"The Committee is concerned about reports of persistent recourse to corporal punishment as a means of discipline in schools (art. 24).

The State party should take the necessary measures to prohibit this practice."


(9 August 2005, CCPR/CO/84/YEM, Concluding observations on fourth report, para. 16)

"The Committee reiterates its deep concern that corporal punishments such as flogging, and in a few cases even amputation of limbs, are still prescribed by law and practised in the State party, in violation of article 7 of the Covenant.

The State Party should immediately put an end to such practices and modify its legislation accordingly, in order to ensure its full compatibility with the Covenant."
