This briefing paper examines the nature, extent and possible causes of torture in police custody in Cambodia during 2001 and 2002. It is hoped that the information in this paper will be used to raise awareness among government officials and the general public to the situation of torture in police custody; to illustrate the need for the alternative methods of criminal investigation by police officers; and to encourage regular independent monitoring of police stations to reduce the practice of torture.
