Proposed IRB code of procedures for torture survivors

Resolution number: 
33
June 1994
Whereas: 
  1. The CCR passed a resolution in May 1993 supporting the initiative of the National Network of Torture Survivor Centres to develop a code of procedures for the treatment of survivors who are refugee claimants;
  2. The CCR remains concerned about the plight of torture survivors in the refugee determination process;
  3. The CCR has been consulted in the preparation of the proposed code of procedures;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR:

  1. Endorse the proposed code of procedures for torture survivors;
  2. Assist the National Network in encouraging the IRB and the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration to study the code and to consult interested parties and to thereby formally create a legally enforceable code of procedures for the treatment of torture survivors.
