COMMITTEE AGAINST TORTURE
28 April-16 May 2003
CONSIDERATION OF REPORTS SUBMITTED BY STATES PARTIES
UNDER ARTICLE 19 OF THE CONVENTION
Conclusions and recommendations of the Committee against Torture
REPUBLIC OF MOLDOVA
The Committee considered the initial report of the Republic of Moldova
(CAT/C/32/Add.4) at its 563rd and 565th meetings (CAT/C/SR.563 and 565), on
8 and 9 May 2003, and adopted the following conclusions and recommendations.
The Committee welcomes the initial report of the Republic of Moldova, although it
regrets the nearly five-year delay in the submission of the report and the paucity of information
on the practical enjoyment in the State party of the rights guaranteed by the Convention.
While taking into account the inability of the State party’s delegation to arrive on time
for the examination of the report due to force majeure, the Committee notes with disappointment
that most of its questions remained unanswered, and reminds the State party of its request to
receive further information in writing.
