Maldives

History, practices and conditions of the Maldivian prison system were presented in this 2011 report. Researcher Naaz Aminath spoke to Minivan News about the report's release.

The Torture Victims Association of the Maldives (TVA) presented this report in June 2012. Based on interviews and research, the report details the practice of torture and analyzes individual cases in the context of the Maldivian government and international law.

A Presidential Commission submitted this report on December 29, 2003, pursuant to a government mandate issued on September 20, 2003. Upon review the report was criticized as incomplete, and another investigation was ordered under President Mohamed Nasheed in 2011. That report has not been completed.
