Under what conditions will the ICRC visit detainees?
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.
