JOINT RESOLUTION Regarding the implementation of the policy of the United

States Government in opposition to the practice of torture by any foreign govern

ment. Whereas international human rights organizations have investigat

ed and reported on the use of torture in many countries through

out the world; Whereas the Department of State in its annual country reports on

human rights practices has reported that torture is all too fre

quent in many countries of the world: Whereas torture knows no ideological boundaries and is practiced

in countries in every region of the world; Whereas torture is absolutely prohibited by international legal

standards; Whereas in those countries where torture is practiced systematical

ly, it is possible to identify laws, institutions, and other forms of political organization that contribute to the practice and allow its continuation; Whereas legal, medical, religious, and other groups seeking to

combat torture emphasize that access to detainees, the civil and criminal prosecution of torturers, and the rehabilitation of victims of torture are critical steps in reducing the practice and ef

fects of torture; Whereas the United States Government has supported the work of

the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in developing the draft Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment which is intended to reduce the practice of torture and lead to its eventual abolition, and the United States Government is supportive of the United

Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture; and Whereas the good will of the peoples of the world toward the

United States can be increased when the United States distances itself from the practice of torture by governments friendly to the United States: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That i the Congress reaffirms that it is the continuing policy of the United States Government to oppose the practice of torture by foreign governments through public and private diplomacy and, when necessary and appropriate, through the enactment and vigorous implementation of laws intended to reinforce United States policies with respect to torture. The United States Government opposes acts of tor
