  • LAOS PRISONS
    LAOS
    Amnesty International and other credible organisations have reported on the Lao prison system over the last decade. Many reports accuse the government in Laos of torturing prisoners and denying them medical care. Many call for prison reform. Prisoners are routinely denied basic human rights and some are subjected to torture. Others are prevented access to medical care. The Lao judicial system is arbitrary and holds suspects without proper court hearings. Anybody who is arrested in Laos, be that for an alleged criminal offense or for some kind of religious or political dissent, is at risk. The Lao authorities restrict access to the prisons, blocking independent assessments of the system.
