Those practices amounted to torture and cruel and ill-treatment, and the children did not have a possibility to complain as the statute of limitations of medical malpractice was only 10 years.
HOGNI S. KRISTJANSSON, Permanent Representative of Iceland to the United Nations Office at Geneva, thanked all the delegations for their remarks and for their contribution to the constructive process of the Universal Periodic Review in which challenges and successes had been pointed out. Iceland would take the inputs of States and non-governmental organizations seriously. With regard to the issue of refugees, Iceland maintained an open policy and in 2016 had received the highest number of refugees ever, who were already integrated in the society. Iceland had concluded framework agreements with the United Nations Refugee Agency and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs which defined Iceland’s long-term financial contributions.
