Torture can be defined as a serious violation of physical and mental integrity of one person or individual. The term ‘torture’ means any act by which intentionally inflicted severe pain or suffering be it physical or mental, upon a person for such purposes to take advantage of him or another person of any kind of information or confession, by punishing him for an act he or another person has committed or is suspected of having committed, or intimidating or forcing to admission of guilt, or for any kind of discrimination. From here we can extract three essential elements which constitute torture: • Causing pain or physical or mental suffering • Deliberate(intentionally) infliction of pain • The pursuit of a specific goal for example: getting information, admission of guilty. The practice of inflating pain and torture is something dating from ancient times, and seems like nothing falls more contrary to claims for humanity and civilization. However, torture has become more prevalent in spite of, and has evolved side by side with civilization. Cases in which practiced torture, time of which it dates, democratic values that’s violate torture and normative rules under international acts will be subject of this paper.
