Abstract
Regulating the ban on torture in the Romanian Criminal Code is the consequence of Romania's accession to the Convention against torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. Incriminating torture, as in international law, is a guarantee that the individual will not be subjected to torture, inhuman or degrading treatment. Through this study, we wanted to highlight the importance of banning torture and inhuman or degrading punishment or treatment, primarily for the good functioning of justice, which implies the exclusion of any violent action, physical or psychological pressure or suffering to obtain information, statements, punishing her or a third person for an act which she has committed or is suspected of having committed, or for any reason based on any form of discrimination.
