Article 11 of the Constitution declares “No person shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”. This Court has consistently recognised that this constitutional prohibition is an absolute ban which protects all persons in Sri Lanka and which expresses the fundamental obligation of every civilized State to protect all those within its territory from torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
