The Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman and Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) publishes today the reports on two return flights it has monitored: one from Rome to Lagos (Nigeria) on 17 December 2015 and the other from Madrid to Bogotà (Colombia) and Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) on 18 February 2016. The two joint removal operations of foreign nationals by air were co-ordinated by Frontex (now European Border and Coast Guard) and organised by Italy and Spain, with the participation of other countries. The responses of the Italian and Spanish authorities to the reports are also published.
