Ballantyne and Muntingh on Torture. May 2007.

Two CSPRI issues question arguments that torture can be justified under certain circumstances. It gives examples of where, inconsistent with international law, harm is unjust.

This Civil Society Prison Reform Intitiative (CSPRI) newsletter contains two issues: 

"As Used on the Famous Nelson Mandela" - the use of mechanical restraints on prisoners and detainees" by Robin Ballantyne.

"Torture is not a crime in South Africa" by Lukas Muntingh.
