Hooding is a form of torture, says UN

Last Updated on November 17, 2022 by Lankae Cast

Do you know what is #hooding?

According to Wikipedia “Hooding is the placing of a hood over the entire head of a prisoner.”

This is illegal by international law & is considered a form of torture by third & fourth Geneva Convention.

In 1997, the United Nations Committee Against Torture had concluded that hooding constituted torture, a position it reiterated in 2004 after the committee’s special rapporteur had “received information on certain methods that have been condoned and used to secure information from suspected terrorists.”

Hooding is a common prelude to execution.
