No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment states, Human Right number 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations. There are many countries whose 30 Human Rights are implicit in their constitutions, but they are still violated left and right. Even in countries of the so-called "first world".
The United Nations advertises on its website that the prohibition of torture is another reflection of the revulsion against concentration camps and Nazi medical experiments on living people that motivated the editors of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in the late forties.
The prohibition of torture is described in more detail in the UN Convention against Torture of 1984. It prohibits torture in a very clear way: "There are no exceptional circumstances at all, whether it is a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency; none of these arguments can be invoked to justify torture.”
Not even prisoners of war, in order to get information. It is it a violation of human rights and a violation of the personal integrity of each individual.
