Preventing Torture report follow-up workshops: the case of Sri Lanka

In May 2013 in the House of Lords, Medact organised a workshop to discuss the recommendations of the Sri Lankan case study in the Medact report Preventing Torture: the role of physicians and their professional organisations: principles and practice.

Chaired by Lord Avebury, it considered this crucial issue in the run up to the Heads of Commonwealth meeting that was due to take place in Sri Lanka later in the year.
