The UN Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture (SPT) has issued an opinion on cross-border monitoring

At its plenary meeting in Geneva in February 2015, the UN Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (SPT) adopted an opinion on cross-border monitoring as guidance for the Norwegian NPM. The opinion concerns how to frame preventive work when one state enters into an agreement with another state with a view to sending inmates to the other state to serve their sentence there.
