The Metastasis of Torture

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The decision by the Bush Administration to engage in coercive interrogation practices has created a series of novel puzzles for institutions downstream that are asked to use the information attained in this way. In particular, courts in many countries have had to wrestle with evidence acquired torture as terrorism cases go through the legal process. This paper looks at the response of courts in Germany, the UK and the US to the torture question and shows how reluctant most judges have been to acknowledge how the evidence before them may have been acquired. As a result, the horrible effects of torture have metastasized into the core of law.
