Description: "The Second Protocol introduces amendments of a technical nature. Provision is made for members of the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) to be placed in one of two groups for election purposes, the aim being to ensure that one half of the Committee's membership is renewed every two years. The Protocol also provides that members of the CPT may be re-elected twice, instead of only once as at present (summary available from the Council of Europe web site).
The web site provides access to the text of the treaty, chart of signatures and ratifications, declarations and reservations, a summary, and an explanatory report.
