EU Charter of Fundamental Rights

Article 4 - Prohibition of torture and inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment

Article 4 - Prohibition of torture and inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment

No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

 

  • Text:

    The right in Article 4 is the right guaranteed by Article 3 of the ECHR, which has the same wording: "No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment". By virtue of Article 52(3) of the Charter, it therefore has the same meaning and the same scope as the ECHR Article.
