Under what conditions will the ICRC visit detainees?

13-05-2013 FAQ

ICRC visits to detainees are based on certain conditions being met. Our delegates must be able to:

  • tour the premises;
  • talk in private with the detainees of their choice;
  • repeat visits as often as deemed necessary;
  • maintain constructive dialogue with the authorities.

The ICRC only discusses its findings and recommendations with the authorities concerned. We believe that this is the best way to obtain satisfactory results.
