The AHRC and RCT launches the Asian Alliance against Torture and Ill-Treatment (AAATI)
The idea that we have to form the Asian Alliance against Torture and
Ill-Treatment comes after almost 15 years of work to introduce the idea
of the elimination of torture and ill-treatment to Asia. When the Asian
Human Rights Commission started work on torture, we were pioneers in the
region. The human rights movement in Asia did not pay much attention to
this problem at that time. Perhaps many thought that it was too big a
problem to be addressed. However, in our work we have found so many
friends from almost all countries of Asia, and we have also found that
the desire to address this issue firmly is very much a part of the
consciousness of the ordinary folk in Asia.
