Abstract

The belief that torture or cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment is something that happens elsewhere, in third world countries perhaps, but not here in South Australia, is misguided. As many in the legal profession know, particularly those who regularly visit places of detention, wherever people are being held in such places, there is a risk that they may be subjected to such treatment.

Keywords: OPCAT, detention, human rights
