（第11項）The State party should repeal Section 134(4) and 134(5) of the Criminal Justice Act 1988 and ensure that its legislation reflects the absolute prohibition of torture, in accordance with article 2, paragraph 2, of the Convention, which states that no exceptional circumstances whatsoever may be invoked as a justification of torture.
（第15項）The Committee recommends that the State party establish without further delay an inquiry on alleged acts of torture and other ill-treatment of detainees held overseas committed by or at the instigation of or with the consent or acquiescence of British official.
また委員会は、国家安全保障に係わる案件について、司法及び安全保障法（Justice and Security Act）に基づき英国政府が7月に導入を検討しているCMP（Closed Material Procedures：非公開証拠手続き）と呼ばれる秘密法廷手続についても懸念を表明した。この手法により、伝聞に基づく証拠や拷問に基づく証拠の利用が有効となるほか、"Special Advocates"といわれる国によって選ばれた"特選弁護人"を利用することで「公正な裁判を行うことが難しくなる」と勧告書は指摘する。
"No obligation to comply," Tokyo decides on the recommendations of the UN Torture Committee on Comfort Women Issues
(TOKYO, June 18) According to the Asahi Shimbun, The Cabinet of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe decided on Tuesday to effectively reject the recommendations on the so-called "comfort women" issues presented by the UN Committee Against Torture (CAT) on May 30. The recommendations "are not legally binding and do not oblige the state parties to the Convention to comply," the Cabinet Decision issued on June 18 stated.
The decision was made in response to a parliamentary memorandum of questions (Japanese-only) submitted by Councillor Tomoko Kami of the Japanese Communist Party on June 11 questioning the intent of the government to take follow-up actions. The CAT recommendation ("Concluding Observations") urged the Japanese government to "refute attempts to deny the facts by the government authorities and public figures and to re-traumatize the victims through such repeated denials."
In response to a reporter at his regular afternoon press briefing (video, Japanese-only) on the same day, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga described the underlying intent of the decision as follows: "The Japanese Government has expressed in numerous occasions in the past its position concerning the issue. The intent of the decision is to state that the Government does not intend to restate our position."
