Responsible do not go unpunished, let the world community must not look the other way

26. June is the International day against torture. In addition, the Chairman of the working group on human rights and humanitarian aid of the CDU/CSU group in the Bundestag declared, Michael Brand:

“Torture is at the very top of the list of Inhumanities. Therefore, the prohibition of torture is absolute – for any type of state. Wrong States shears, however, is seldom that.

An example of the cruelest methods of torture in the Syrian Regime provides. The process against a representative of the Assad regime in front of a German court in Koblenz is the world’s first criminal proceedings for crimes against humanity. But also in Libyan refugee torture and sexual violence, counting to store the tools of the criminals against humanity. Inhuman conditions in Camps and prisons in Turkey, China or Russia. Those responsible must be brought to the appropriate time to account.

We support the United Nations investigation of human rights violations. This is true both for China, where reports of torture and medical coercive measures in internal training camps, as well as for Venezuela where the Maduro government delivers the right with the feet.

The world must not look away. The torturer must know that they can escape their just punishment. The International criminal court (ICC) makes an important contribution to this, he is an important part of the international rule of law.

The CDU/CSU group welcomes the recent statement by the 67 out of a total of 123 member States of the ICC, one of which is Germany. The Declaration of the government Trump against the ICC rejects, however, the Union as illegitimate. Because it aims at weakening the court. The American government had announced to block economic sanctions and the Entry against employee of the court.

To protect the ICC is a need of the hour is but. We hope that the next American Administration is positioning itself anew.“
