The International Day in Support of Victims of Torture is observed on 26 June every year by the United Nations (UN). The date 26 June was selected because on this day in 1987, the convention against torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment was made effective. This convention has now been ratified by 162 countries. It is important to mark this day because it unites people in support of those who have been victims of physical and mental torture. Under international laws, torture is a crime. Through this occasion, the UN aims to eradicate torture, an act that denies dignity to the victims. With this day, the UN wants to end the degrading inhuman treatment.
