Human Rights Committee: Lesotho

HRC session 065 (1999)

(8 April 1999, CCPR/C/79/Add.106, concluding observations on initial report, para. 20)

"The Committee expresses concern about the treatment of detainees in contravention of articles 7 and 10 of  the Covenant. While it notes the statement by the delegation that corporal punishment has been abolished, it observes with concern that the State party report indicates that corporal punishment is still being practised, provided that medical doctors are present. The Committee urges the State party to take the necessary measures to improve prison conditions and to abolish totally corporal punishment both in law and in practice."
