Barbarism Begins At Home

Human rights are very important to politicians until they might be bad for their poll ratings. Witness the treatment of the suspects re-arrested for deportation last week. An example of a public relations exercise as they are sure to be released on appeal.

This from their solicitors:
"One was taken from the psychiatric hospital where he has been an inpatient since his release from Broadmoor Hospital under a Control Order on March 11th of this year. He is one of two men now rearrested who were moved from Belmarsh prison to Broadmoor Hospital in 2004 after three years of indefinite detention had destroyed their sanity. They are at serious risk; we are informed that all of those now detained at Long Lartin prison are on suicide watch. These include a third man who was released from Belmarsh to house arrest in 2004 because he too had been driven into madness by incarceration in prison. All of the detainees are refugees; so too are their families; most are victims of torture.

The Home Office is completely aware of the recent serious psychiatric history of each and the reasons for that history."

Talk about being deported to abusive regimes, sounds like they are already in one. And remember not one of these guys has been charged or tried in relation to any crime in this country. Kafka's got nothing on this.
