Strasbourg, 21 November 2016 - The European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) held its 91st plenary meeting from 7 to 11 November 2016 in Strasbourg.

During this meeting, it adopted the reports on its periodic visits to Azerbaijan (March/April 2016), Italy (April 2016), Latvia (April 2016), the Netherlands (May 2016) and Liechtenstein (June 2016), and on its ad hoc visits to Greece (April and July 2016) and to Turkey (August/September 2016).
