Editor’s Note: Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we will post updates on ongoing cases of torture, new opinion pieces in the media, or news stories or issues that emerge.
Following the capture and death of Gaddafi, several states, the UN human rights commission, and human rights groups have called for an investigation or condemned the killing of the former regime leader and consider whether it constituted a war crime. Some believe that for the future of Libya, it would have been preferable for the former dictator to face a trial for his crimes. More horrible torture stories have also emerged from Libya.
In a case we mentioned last week, Pakistan police in Lahore will not investigate the torture death of a 70-year-old man who died after a night in police custody. This is a horrible betrayal of justice, yet again.
Keep a look out on this blog and our website today for an exciting announcement.
