Torture has been known throughout the history of man. Torture by Police and other state authorities and deaths in custody (of the police, prison and other authorities) are reported from many countries. It is a cruel, inhuman, degrading treatment and punishment. Deaths in custody following torture are most appalling violations of human rights. Sri Lankan Government became a signatory to the Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment in 1993 and incorporated the convention into the domestic legal system by way of the Convention against Torture and other Cruel Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment Act No. 22 of 1994.
