Forensic documentation is crucial for documenting torture, and is generally treated as a central component
of any effort to prosecute torture. As a result, it is central to ending the impunity for torture which is key to
its perpetuation. Forensic evidences have been the centerpiece of the judgment by the court of cassation.
This shows the important of the quality, independence and impartiality of the forensic examination for any
strategy for the prevention of torture in Jordan.
