Artikkel 4 - Piinamise ning ebainimliku või alandava kohtlemise või karistamise keeld

Kedagi ei tohi piinata ega ebainimlikult või alandavalt kohelda ega karistada.

    Text:

    Artiklis 4 sisalduv õigus vastab õigusele, mis on tagatud Euroopa inimõiguste ja põhivabaduste kaitse konventsiooni artikliga 3, millel on sama sõnastus: `Kedagi ei tohi piinata ega ebainimlikult või alandavalt kohelda ega karistada.` Harta artikli 52 lõike 3 kohaselt on nimetatud õigusel sama tähendus ja ulatus kui Euroopa inimõiguste ja põhivabaduste kaitse konventsiooni nimetatud artiklil.

    Preamble - Explanations relating to the Charter of Fundamental Rights:
    Käesolevad selgitused valmistati algselt ette Euroopa Liidu põhiõiguste harta koostanud konvendi presiidiumi juhtimisel. Selgitusi ajakohastati Euroopa Konvendi presiidiumi vastutusel, pidades silmas nimetatud konvendi poolt harta tekstis (eelkõige artiklites 51 ja 52) tehtud kohandusi ning liidu õiguse arengut. Kuigi selgitustel endil pole õigusjõudu, on nad harta tõlgendamisel väärtuslikuks vahendiks, mille eesmärk on selgitada harta sätteid.

    (Human Rights Committee, General Comment No. 35)

    ‘34. The individual must be brought to appear physically before the judge or other officer authorized by law to exercise judicial power. The physical presence of detainees at the hearing gives the opportunity for inquiry into the treatment that they received in custody and facilitates immediate transfer to a remand detention centre if continued detention is ordered. It thus serves as a safeguard for the right to security of person and the prohibition against torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment. ‘ ‘58. Several safeguards that are essential for the prevention of torture are also necessary for the protection of persons in any form of detention against arbitrary detention and infringement of personal security. The following examples are non-exhaustive. Detainees should be held only in facilities officially acknowledged as places of detention. A centralized official register should be kept of the names and places of detention, and times of arrival and departure, as well as of the names of persons responsible for their detention, and made readily available and accessible to those concerned, including relatives. Prompt and regular access should be given to independent medical personnel and lawyers and, under appropriate supervision when the legitimate purpose of the detention so requires, to family members. Detainees should be promptly informed of their rights, in a language they understand; providing information leaflets in the appropriate language, including in Braille, may often assist the detainee in retaining the information. Detained foreign nationals should be informed of their right to communicate with their consular authorities, or, in the case of asylum seekers, with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Independent and impartial mechanisms should be established for visiting and inspecting all places of detention, including mental-health institutions.‘
