Since September 2011, METAdrasi has been conducting the identification and certification of torture victims. The program is operated by an interdisciplinary team (social worker, doctor, psychologist, lawyer) former members of MRCT with 30 years of experience in the field.

The whole process is based on the “Istanbul Protocol”, manual on the effective investigation and documentation of torture allegations and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

Participation/referral information

Send the referral form via e-mail with beneficiary’s name and contact information. People may also come themselves at our offices without being referred. Services are available to anyone who wishes to be certified as a victim of torture. Other actors may freely refer people who claim, or they consider them, to be victims of torture. At every step of the procedure, we take strict confidentiality measures.
